National Windscreens First in UK to Achieve ADAS Qualifications

National Windscreens technicians have become the first in the country to achieve recognized Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) qualifications from awarding organization, GQA Qualifications.

“Many ADAS safety features work through cameras mounted on windscreens so if a replacement is needed then calibration is also necessary, but competence in this calibration work has never been subject to formal qualifications before,” said Pete Marsden, managing director at National Windscreens.

“By working with employers such as National Windscreens, we have written two new units that have now been added to the GQA Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Automotive Glazing and the GQA Level 3 Certificate in Automotive Glazing. Technical Knowledge tests in the GQA Level 3 Award for Continued Competence in Automotive Glazing have also been updated to ensure ADAS knowledge is assessed,” said Sean Hayes, GQA technical manager.

GQA Qualifications registration and certification system means existing National Windscreens technicians who already hold a qualification can achieve either or both of these new units as a stand-alone recognition.
