A glazier can perform these tasks on buildings, cars and any other forms containing glass or windows. A glazier can prepare for the task at hand by handling, cutting, shaping and fabricating glass to specifications for certain jobs.
 
A glazier can install new glass structures from plans within building structures or repair existing glass materials in need of restoration or repair. To perform the duties effectively the glazier will know all applicable codes and regulations in line with the trade. A glazier will be highly skilled in the use of hand tools and power tools and specialty layout tools.
 
The increasing use of pre made windows and glass doors has altered the standard or typical tasks of the glazier. Improvements in thermal capacity of modern glass and the demand for more visual exposure through windows has resulted in larger modules that are heavier with a higher level of danger, requiring increased knowledge of rigging and hoisting to avoid material damage.
 
The entry requirement for a glazier is an AQF Certificate III or higher qualification.
