A Clear Difference! Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program

Mopar® is launching an all-new, industry-first automotive glass-repair certification program called the Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program.

Leveraging the collision repair educational expertise of the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR®), the program is specifically designed for those facilities that perform glass replacement as part of their automotive collision repair work.

The Mopar Certified Glass Installer Program provides a significant differentiator for all entities in the glass-replacement business. Certified installers will use factory-engineered and factory-backed Mopar Glass, in addition to factory-approved education and training from I-CAR to ensure customer vehicles are repaired to original equipment standards, providing a true competitive advantage in the marketplace.
