Posted on August 29th, 2016 by Heather West
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host an online contest for players to win discounts on FenestrationMasters® courses and exams. The game will be played on both LinkedIn and Twitter every Monday and Wednesday, respectively, at 12:30 p.m. EDT from Sept. 12 through Oct. 12, as well as during the GlassBuild America show (Oct. 19-21 in Las Vegas). The contest will feature quiz questions from AAMA's FenestrationsMasters program — the industry resource for comprehensive professional education and certification.
Each Monday, one quiz question will be asked on AAMA's LinkedIn group and a different quiz question will be posted on AAMA's Twitter account two days later, each Wednesday. The first five respondents with the correct answer will receive a five percent discount each week for up to 25 percent off FenestrationMasters courses and exams. To participate in the online contest, follow AAMA on Twitter (@AAMAInfo) or search for the contest hashtag, #RUsmarter. Also, those who join the association's LinkedIn group to play will increase their chances for discounts.
Additionally, each day of GlassBuild America in booth 213, AAMA will be hosting the game show, "Are You Smarter than a FenestrationMaster," where participants will be awarded a five percent discount on FenestrationMasters courses and exams for each quiz question they answer correctly. Participants have the chance to win a 25 percent discount during the industry event.
In addition, by competing during the online contest and at the show, participants could earn up to a 50 percent discount toward courses and exams. Winners are encouraged to share their discount via social media, using the contest hashtag, #RUsmarter. "
FenestrationMasters is a cost-effective way to train new employees, especially those in sales and marketing capacities, as well as seasoned technical staff. Upon completion of the training, both will be well versed in industry standards and best practices across all facets of the industry," says Angela Dickson, AAMA's marketing manager.
