Glass Doctor University Opens Its Doors to Entire Industry

March 23, 2010

Glass Doctor University (GDU), Glass Doctor’s franchisee training facility in Waco, Texas, is opening its doors the entire industry, according to company vice president of operations Dan Mock. The company’s first industry-wide training class will be held April 19-22.

The course lasts four days. The first half a day is spent on adhesive training, and the company will train to both Dow Automotive and SIKA Corp. specifications. The remainder of the course is spent on advanced training techniques and discussions of industry standards and various available tools. The course is taught by industry expert Frank Levesque.

“It’s very detailed,” says Mock. “It’s more for an advanced technician or a business owner.”

The course costs $1,495, including four nights’ hotel stay and breakfast and lunch each day.

GDU is in the process of becoming an AGRSS-registered training course and Mock hopes the course will encourage more to become AGRSS-registered as well.

“The number-one reason we’ve done this is to help people get AGRSS-registered and, number-two, to help the industry,” he says.

He adds, “[Participants] will have everything they need to become AGRSS-registered [when they leave here].”

The course will be offered to 12 attendees at a time and will be scheduled as needed. Though each class will also contain Glass Doctor’s newest franchisees, Mock advises the class is not intended to promote its franchise offerings.

“We’re not going to try to sell people franchises while they’re there,” he says.
