There are courses you can take and they will give you basic knowledge but the real experience comes from day to day practice. If you are an auto tinter then you know a course doesn't make you an auto tinter. Working with someone experienced in flatglass is a plus. F2G charts can help with absorbtion but a lot of it is experience and general knowldge of why things break.

Just practice man.... practice practice. ive been doing auto for about 2 3 years and I still have only done like two or three residental (flat glass) Installs. Id rather be pulling a panel or heat shrinking a 2 dr dodge before doing 30 ft longs windows in a house. But thats just me I know flat is more money.

Good training is the key to "hitting the ground running" :krazy

I would suggest taking a course, they will give you a good rundown on how to judge glass and work the film 2 glass chart and will show you some tricks of the trade for installations. That is if you have the money and time. Also practice on you storefront windows at yer shop or at yer house. Like it was said before, you will not be a flatglass tinter after you take a course, it is just designed to show you the basics, but the more you know before you start installing for money and charging customers the better off you will be.
