The course has been designed for students with any level of knowledge or experience. When you book on, we ask about any prior experience so that we can make sure you are in a group of students at a similar level. For example, window fitters and locksmiths already know the basics and so we will skip those, using the time to concentrate on the higher-level modules in greater detail.
We aim for three students per course. Occasionally companies will send groups or teams, and in this case, up to five students will be taught at the same time.

Double glazing repair is an extensive and rapidly growing market, even more so in a world in which people see the value of repairing rather than replacing. Over the past 18 years, we have repaired many doors and windows that other companies have written off and told the customer to replace at vast expense.

Setting up a new business venture often has huge financial implications, and although there are some outlays to set up as a double glazing repair specialist, they are relatively small compared with almost any other trade. Additionally, you are in control of the hours you work; most jobs are not an emergency and so you do not have to be on call 24/7. Full-time or part-time, the choice is yours!

Becoming a double glazing repair specialist future-proofs your income; in excess of 80% of properties have at least one double glazed window, and house-building is on the up, with practically all new properties being fitted with double glazed windows.

The earning potential in this sector is exceptional; profits on materials is high with some jobs particularly lucrative, and if you offer double glazing maintenance contracts, your running costs and wages will be quickly covered by these scheduled works.

We are the good guys of the glazing world; repairing something that could cost thousands to replace is an incredible business model, and one with indisputable value. At The Window and Door Repair Academy, we will make sure you have undertaken comprehensive training so that you are fully trained in all aspects of double glazing repair, ensuring you don’t make any costly mistakes. Short online courses do not go into enough detail to cover everything you need to know, but by booking with The Window and Door Repair Academy, you can be sure we will leave no key unturned.
