Mopar is launching an industry-first automotive glass-repair certification program called the Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program, which the company says leverages the collision repair educational expertise of the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR®). Mopar information states that the program is specifically designed for those facilities that perform glass replacement as part of their automotive collision repair work. Through the program, certified installers will use factory-engineered and factory-backed Mopar Glass, in addition to factory-approved education and training from I-CAR to ensure customer vehicles are repaired to original equipment standards.
The Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program includes Mopar and I-CAR-approved glass course modules, the courses of which include factory recommended bonded glass tools, fixed glass removal/installation, damage analysis and Mopar-specific requirements.
“With the constantly advancing technologies within the glass repair and replacement industry, and the trends to become even more sophisticated moving forward, the need for proper training, procedures and tools is more important than ever,” said Mike Fisher, Mopar product line manager. “Working together with I-CAR and the JRT Agency, our industry-first Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program addresses all the needs of dealers, repair shops, insurance agencies and distributors, ensuring our customers receive a factory-backed repair that meets strict original equipment quality and safety standards.”
