The CMRT assesses the proficiency of technicians responsible for preventative, ‎predictive and corrective maintenance.‎

Certified Asset Management Assessor ‎

The CAMA assesses an individual’s qualifications to be an auditor of asset management ‎systems. ‎

SMRPCO is led by a Certification Commission elected by the certificants.
