Does anyone know of a school that teaches to install auto glass in the Vegas area? I have been searching but can not find anything. Thanks to anyone that can help.

I would just call the Glass repair companies and find out how they reived their certification and training. I know a couple of places do on-the-job training. But I think its rare.

No school needed. When I was a teenager I managed an oil change shop that had glass repair on the side. The glass guys "schooled" me on the repair in about 6 minutes (the time it takes to do one repair). Then I was off doing my own.

The biggest thing to know is which ones to repair and which ones to avoid (because each repair runs a slight risk of cracking the windshield in the process). Trying to offer this service without a glass replacement company to back you up is risky.

Anyway, I don't repair any of my own cracks and instead let my glass insurance do its job by getting me a new non-blemished windshield every 4-7 years when it breaks.
