The International Window Film Association (IWFA) is aiming to address the need for qualified window film installers by partnering with Window Tint School, based in Jacksonville, Florida, the company announced.
Made up of a broad array of window film manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, dealers and individual installers, the IWFA is expanding its educational program by providing Window Tint School with educational materials and accreditation testing, the organization said, to ascertain and recognize the school’s students for their comprehension of various IWFA Educational Accreditation Programs: Solar Control Window Film, Automotive Window Film, Safety and Security Window Film and Advanced Solar Control Window Film.
With the IWFA’s involvement, students may be able to graduate from Window Tint School with official IWFA accreditations, the organization said. Graduating students will also receive a one-year complimentary membership in the IWFA.
Window Tint School was founded by Jon Dewar and Darren Fettik in 2015 and is dedicated solely to training and educating window film installers. The school offers either a three-day or five-day curriculum taught by installation professionals where students learn window film installation on flat glass, automotive glass, decorative films, plus take field trips to nearby window film businesses and receive sales training.
“Many window film dealerships will want to have graduates of Window Tint School on their team, not just for the high-level of training students obtain, but also for the opportunity of ranking higher in the IWFA’s business locator,” said Darrell Smith, executive director of the IWFA. “The combination of IWFA membership and accreditation that many of the students graduate with, will be a game-changer in the industry,” he added.
