GlasWeld launches distance learning program
GlasWeld, Bend, Ore., launched its Distance Learning Program Feb. 2. The glass repair education, training and certification program is delivered to customers via Gconnect, a proprietary online communications platform utilizing Adobe Connect technology.
The on-demand training modules in the program’s initial release include introductory information on new repair techniques using GlasWeld equipment; the science and history of glass; how glass breaks; the impact of natural forces and elements on repair; and detailed equipment operation instruction.
Participants are led through the Web-based training components to garner practical glass repair information, after which they complete online examinations, according to a release.
The Distance Learning Program for auto glass repair is the first piece of the Gconnect communications platform. Gconnect will continue to develop to offer the glass repair industry further live and recorded training sessions, data, presentations, product demonstrations, live technical support and more. Users can interact directly with trainers in real-time, or can play the sessions on demand at their convenience, the release states.
