Automotive Glass Technician

An Automotive Glass Technician is responsible for removing, installing, repairing and generally servicing all types of stationary and movable glass in motor vehicles. With new automotive safety systems such as ADAS (advanced driver assistance system), many vehicles now have cameras and sensors that must be re-calibrated following glass replacement, so many auto glass shops are investing in electronic equipment and the training required to perform these jobs.
