The Northern California Glass Management Association has offered grants to reimburse NCGMA contractor members who have current North American Contractor Certification (NACC) for sending up to 10 glaziers to take the Architectural Glass & Metal Technician (AGMT) test.

Please talk to your company to see if they have applied for this grant to cover wages for the AGMT Test portion of this certification.
