Glaziers put the glitter and gleam in today’s buildings. Glaziers must be skilled in cutting, handling and setting all types of glass, mirrors and structural glass from gourd level to great heights. They must be knowledgeable about chemicals, primers and sealants they use to water-seal the frames and glass they install. Glaziers must work together as a team and follow safety rules to protect themselves from injuries and cuts.

Glazier apprentices receive four years of training by skilled journey-level glazing instructors, along with technical adult education classes.
