  • New Benefits, Improvements and Expanded Accessibility for CMRP & CMRT Program

    We are excited to announce a host of new benefits and improvements to come for the Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) and Certified Maintenance & Reliability Technician (CMRT) programs.

    Newly appointed SMRPCO Executive Director Jane Siggelko will lead implementation of the program’s enhancements to including improved accessibility and online functionality for those becoming certified, recertifying or currently certified, and enhanced efforts to promote the value of CMRP and CMRT to industry audiences worldwide. 


    • Accessibility: SMRPCO is partnering with Pearson VUE, the world's largest learning company, to make the CMRP and CMRT exams available in more than 5,000 testing centers around the world, including United States’ military bases, both home and abroad.
    • Immediate & Full Score Reports: Exam-takers will now receive a full score report immediately upon completion. While pass/fail results have been available in the past, this detailed report will allow individuals to assess improvement opportunities the minute they step away from the exam.
    • Digital Badges: In an effort to emphasize the value and importance of an individual’s CMRP and CMRT certifications, those passing or recertifying will receive digital badges hyperlinked to an online resource with detailed information on the CMRP and CMRT.
    • Certificates: Upon passing, certificants will now receive a complimentary print certificate mailed to their home address.

    The implementation of outlined improvements and benefits now are under way and will continue through to the fall. Stay tuned for news regarding all of the new benefits and additions coming to certification in 2019.
