Both FGIA’s Fundamentals of Fenestration and Preventing IG Failures education programs will be overhauled in 2022, ensuring the inclusion of up-to-date content, streamlined delivery and improved user experiences, thanks to more interactive images and videos. FGIA staff will be working in conjunction with applicable task group members to update content and to finalize delivery strategies. FGIA members with an interest in these projects are encouraged to join the FGIA Online Education Committee for general program updates and/or the IG Fabricator Workshop/Preventing IG Failures Task Group (IGMA TM-4100) for content review and development strategies specific to this group now.

“In recent years, FGIA has been diligently focused on updating our professional certification programs, InstallationMasters® and FenestrationMasters®, to meet industry needs and support FGIA’s strategic focus on education, as relayed by the Board of Directors,” said Kaydeen Laird, FGIA Education Manager. “Now that those updates have been completed, we are turning our attention to the non-certification education programs to ensure that we are always offering the most current information to our members.”

A new program outline for Fundamentals of Fenestration is scheduled for January, and a draft for Preventing IG Failures is expected to be ready around May. Past program participants will be surveyed for feedback regarding content to include in each updated program.

Those interested in helping to support FGIA’s education initiatives for the programs that do not result in a professional certification can request to join the Online Education Committee. When programs are up for review, those involved can anticipate at least one or two 60-minute conference calls to review and discuss the proposed staff strategies.

The Online Education Committee is open to all FGIA members.
