Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP)

It was developed to assess professionals’ aptitude within the five pillars of the SMRP Body of Knowledge, which include: business and management, manufacturing process reliability, equipment reliability, organization and leadership, and work management.

The CMRP is accredited by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI), an independent third-party organization that evaluates certification programs and organization requirements on a regular basis. The CMRP exam is the only certification program of its kind accredited by ANSI under the ISO/IEC 17024 standard. Visit www.ansi.org to learn more about accreditation.
