THE WINDOW FITTERS GUILD
The mark of the Window Fitters Guild is an official Certification Mark registered with the US Government PTO. Those who display the mark proudly attest to the fitting of window and door products to the Standards and Practices as registered and in accordance with procedures and training provided by AWDI - based on recognized codes, and industry best practices. Using our systems, you will be the only company able to offer the industry’s first and only Federally Registered Certification Mark Registration No. 78939046 (PRINCIPAL REGISTER) on all your installs.

AWDI has been training and certifying fenestration tradesmen since 1991, and pioneered fenestration installation standards, procedures and training in 1989. The first standard was established by AWDI. The first Certification program was established by AWDI.. AWDI is listed as a reference in the ASTM 2112 work, and AWDI is participated in the re-writing of ASTM E-2112-07 and the ASTM Task Group E06.51.11 (Fenestration Installation) working on revised methods for Coastal Installation.

Qualifications for Window Fitter

WHO IS THIS TRAINING and CERTIFICATION FOR?
This training structure is part of an overall Window Fitters Guild occupational standard. This training is aimed at those who work as installers and surveyors of fenestration systems for new construction (both light commercial and residential) and retrofit/replacement (light commercial and residential).

The standards and training cover the most important aspects of the job. The following training is at Level 3, and should taken by those who are experienced installers or surveyors, capable of dealing with a wide range of problems, including working with installations that have complex requirements. Successful candidates will often take a technical supervisory role, particularly in relation to less-experienced fitters or surveyors. They will also work closely with customers and have well-developed customer service skills.

In addition to redefining proper drainage and vapor barrier continuity, AWDI seeks to:
1.     Define Proper Installation
2.     Establish methods to take consistent products and produce consistent results while dealing with inconsistent openings
3.      Establish a delivery system to train installers of new construction products in the new techniques and standards to be established in conjunction with new standards, codes, methods and accepted principles
4.     Introduce new tools, techniques and materials to the installation trade

AWDI continues to promote a forum and testing ground for development of new and better materials, techniques, and accessories to improve the quality and performance of window and door installation.

Those who become certified will be able to qualify for the use of the Certification mark on all their work.
Consumers whose windows and doors are installed by an AWDI Certified Installer who displays the AWDI Certification Mark on their work will know that their new indows "...will work right because they have been installed right."
