Auto Glass Installers - Preparation

To work as an auto glass installer, you typically need to:

  • have a high school diploma or equivalent; and
  • complete moderate-term, on-the-job training.

Education after high school

Some auto glass installers complete formal training programs. Auto glass installer training programs are available at professional-technical schools, two-year colleges, and some high schools. You can learn about auto glass installation while completing an auto body repair program.

On-the-job training

Most auto glass installers receive informal on-the-job training from an experienced worker. Trainees usually begin as a helper. Training generally lasts about one year.

Workers also receive short-term training provided by equipment manufacturers.
