The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host a webinar on Tuesday, June 13 at 12:30 p.m. ET to discuss recent updates to AAMA’s InstallationMasters program, including a redesign of its website. The online session is free and open to anyone in the industry.

“As we all know, construction methods have evolved as have fenestration product designs, installation materials and code requirements, so it was time to take a fresh look at the InstallationMasters Program training content,” says AAMA association services director Janice Yglesias. “Last year, the training manual was reviewed in detail and revised, and the program was given a facelift to refresh the brand. In March, the redesigned website,, was launched to align with that branding, but that was just the first phase of the program overhaul.”

During the webinar, Yglesias will provide an overview of the enhancements that have been implemented since the administration of the program was brought in-house earlier this year and those slated for future release, continuing AAMA’s strategic focus on industry education.

Due to differences in installation practices for new construction versus remodeling, AAMA is reorganizing the InstallationMasters course content into focused segments to better address market needs. This dedicated focus is represented in replacement-only and new-construction-only classes. Because some installers may cover both applications, a new combined class is also being developed, but the existing program will continue until the new combined class is available.

The InstallationMasters Program provides training and certification to industry professionals installing windows and exterior glass doors in residential and light commercial construction applications.

In 2001, AAMA announced the nationwide launch of the InstallationMasters program. Since that time, over 11,000 installers have achieved certification, according to AAMA.
