SMRP was formed in 1992 by practitioners from 18 different companies who were passionate about actively promoting maintenance and reliability within their field and to the public. In 1997, SMRP formed SMRPCO to create a certification program to validate the skills and knowledge of maintenance, reliability and physical asset management practitioners. Three years later, the first Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional exam (CMRP) was administered.

Today, SMRPCO offers three exams:

  • Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP)
  • Certified Maintenance & Reliability Technician (CMRT)
  • Certified Asset Management Assessor (CAMA)*

*The CAMA exam is managed by the World Partners in Asset Management. For information on the CAMA exam, visit www.wpiam.com.

Certification Commission

SMRPCO is led by a Certification Commission elected by the certificants. The SMRPCO Certification Commission develops procedures and policies for all activities related to certification. The current commissioners include:

  • Chair: David Rosenthal, CMRP
  • Vice Chair: Tim DeWeese, CMRP
  • Member at Large: Jeff Copley, CMRP
  • Member at Large: Arvind Parmar, CMRP
  • Member at Large: Jeff Parker, CMRP
