5 Reasons You Should Certify Your Technicians


The CMRT Exam is the leading credentialing program for the knowledge, skills and abilities of maintenance and reliability technicians. 

The CMRT exam tests competency and knowledge of specific tasks within 4 domains: Maintenance Practices, Preventative and Predictive Maintenance, Troubleshooting and Analysis, and Corrective Maintenance.

And that's all well and good! But, why should you have your technicians certified? What are the benefits of having them pass the CMRT? Here are 5 reasons why you should have your technicians certified:

  1. Validates the individual’s knowledge on maintenance and reliability best practices within the 4 domains.

  2. Confirms your commitment to advancing your team’s professional development.

  3. A globally recognized certification provides a personal level of satisfaction and pride of accomplishment.

  4. Encourages people to move beyond the status quo and achieve more for the organization.

  5. Determines strengths and opportunities by subject area to provide a development plan road-map.
