NWRD Certification Program

For Compliance and Proficiency with ANSI Repair Standards

This education and certification program has been developed and is administered by the National Windshield Repair Division (NWRD – a division of the AGSC), the only entity in North America dedicated solely to the needs and promotion of windshield repair. NWRD member companies subscribe to the highest levels of professionalism, safety and ethics. The NWRD’s certification program promotes and educates compliance to the ANSI standard, the only standard developed by the Industry.

Certification shows that those certified have successfully completed this course and understand the steps necessary for a company and its individuals to be in compliance with ANSI/AGSC/NWRD/ROLAGS 002-2022, the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS™).

The NWRD conducts repair (not replacement) certification testing online. The test consists of 60 questions and you must get 42 questions correct in order to pass.

Certification is valid for three years, and expires on December 31 of the third year from when you became certified.

In order to maintain certification, each person must successfully complete one continuing education unit (CEU) during the period above. A CEU consists of 20 questions about windshield repair. The questions are developed to test current knowledge of the windshield repair or auto glass industry. If your certification lapses, you must start over.

Should you not receive a satisfactory score, you must wait a minimum of two weeks before taking the final exam again. You may take the final exam up to three (3) times in the year following your application for certification. After that time, you must re-register.

NWRD certification does not imply endorsement of a particular company, nor does it warrant that work is being done properly. Individuals successfully completing the course have shown their knowledge of what is necessary for proper repair, according to the ANSI Standard.

If you have any questions about this program or its administration, please contact April Deane at 540/602-3255 or email adeane@agsc.org.
