Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional Program
The Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) program is the number one credentialing program for certifying the knowledge, skills, and experience of M&R professionals.
Every facility needs at least one CMRP on its team — and most should have more. They have the knowledge and skills to ensure efficiency and productivity on site – from technical skills and streamlined processes to performance management and managerial confidence.
The CMRP exam is accredited by ANSI. Other certification programs are not so distinguished. This program is not tied to any commercial ventures — it is unbiased and developed by companies in academics, government, industry, and utilities.
Statement of Policy with Respect to Training Courses
SMRPCO will not offer any training to assist persons in preparing for the certification examinations. A foundational belief in developing this examination is that professionals in the maintenance and reliability industry receive their experience and training from a variety of sources, both on the job and from outside training. Therefore, no experience or educational requirements are set for the exam. The examinations are designed to test both knowledge and experience. In general, knowledge is not something that was recently learned. It is experience and training that has been applied, tested and analyzed.
Further, the Maintenance and Reliability Body of Knowledge, upon which the exam is based, is very broad. SMRPCO strongly advises that a course of one or two weeks or even months will not adequately prepare candidates to successfully complete a certification examination.
As such, SMRPCO will not develop any training courses to assist persons in successfully completing certification exams. SMRPCO’s functions are:
- development and administration of examinations that reflect, to the degree possible, the current Maintenance and Reliability Body of Knowledge, and
- administration and conveyance of results and credentials associated with certification examinations and subsequent re-certification requirements.
Certified Maintenance and Reliability Technician Program
The CMRT will provide a non-biased, third-party, objective assessment and confirmation of the skills of your industrial maintenance mechanics. For maintenance mechanics, the CMRT program provides an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and be recognized.
CMRTs are responsible for preventive, predictive, and corrective maintenance. They perform troubleshooting and analysis, and apply sound maintenance practices in all aspects of their work. CMRTs are multi-skilled individuals whose expertise is primarily mechanical in nature as opposed to instrumentation or electrical.
