Monday, July 16, is the last day to sign up to compete in the first-ever Auto Glass Technician Calibration Competition, which will be held during Auto Glass Week™ 2018. The competition is dedicated to finding and honoring the best calibrators in the world and is sponsored by Opti-Aim.
The technology behind Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) often makes recalibration of the ADAS system necessary after a windshield replacement. This competition focuses on the proper methods and technology necessary for such calibrations.
All competitors will complete a preliminary heat at their shop. The technicians with the four highest scores will become the four finalists.
The top four competitors will be invited to compete in person in the finals round to be held on either Friday, September 28, or Saturday, September 29, at Auto Glass Week™ 2018. If the competitor cannot attend, the next highest scorer will be invited. All finalists will receive a free full registration to Auto Glass Week.
The gold medalist and grand champion will be announced at the Closing Awards Party on Saturday, September 29 and will receive a prize of $5,000 and bragging rights as the “World’s Best Auto Glass Calibration Technician.”
