Tiffany Domingos takes the silver medal in international competition

ATASCADERO — Tiffany Domingos, an automotive glass repair and replacement technician with JJB Auto Glass in Atascadero, won the silver medal in the Delta Kits Windshield Repair competition during Auto Glass Week™ (AGW), held June 7-9 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Domingos was one of four finalists in the competition and received the $250 prize award.

Auto Glass Week™ is the only event that offers the original equipment (OE) and aftermarket auto glass repair and replacement industry the opportunity to learn from peers and industry experts. The Windshield Replacement Competition is designed to recognize the technician who performs the best windshield repair. Contestants are judged on a variety of criteria, including professional attire, greeting clients, technical behavior, preparation of the vehicle, proper use of tools and products, quality of the repair technique, the appearance of the complete repair, post-repair and customer procedures, in-depth knowledge, and ROLAGS® proficiency.

The highly competitive, three-day event includes a series of heats leading into the final competition. Each competitor repaired a complex break on a car’s front windshield in accordance with the industry’s Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard, or ROLAGS®.
