The article reads;
Jim’s Glass launched in Perth on 1 October, with a team of Certified and Master Glaziers. As part of the process of establishing the business, every glazier completed the AGGA AS/NZS 1288 Intermediate online training and submitted applications for either Certified or Master Glazier status for each and every glazier employed by the business.
‘Jim’s Glass is committed to best practice, and the Master Glazier program provides us with a mechanism to ensure we are only using highly skilled glaziers,’ says Divisional General Manager Phillip Mauviel.
The Regional Manager at Jim’s Glass in Perth, Steven Whyte, found that by undertaking these processes delivered a sense of professionalism to the team, ensured that the entire glazing team is up to date with AS/NZS 1288, and showed a commitment to the glaziers that their skills are essential to the success of the business.
‘The ongoing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements of the Master Glazier Program ensures that we are continuously investing back into our people and meeting our requirements under our franchise agreement with Jim’s,’ says Steven.
Patrick Gavaghan, AGGA National Training Manager applauds the decision by Jim’s Glass to use the resources supplied by AGGA, such as the online training and the Master Glazier Program to lay the foundations for their business. ‘Jim’s Glass is leading the way, setting the benchmark for what should be considered industry best practice in glazier skills and customer service.’
