A foundational belief in developing this examination is that professionals in the maintenance and reliability industry learn critical knowledge, skills and abilities from a variety of sources, both on the job and from outside training; therefore, no specific work experience or education are required for the certification. Nevertheless, there are a number of resources that can aid in preparing for the CMRP exam, such as the SMRP Body of Knowledge, practice questions and recommended readings.
The CMRP Roadmap
Working with CMRP-certified professionals, we developed a roadmap to help individuals prepare for the CMRP exam. The CMRP Roadmap describes eight areas that help individuals master the five pillars of the SMRP Body of Knowledge (BoK). Access it today!

The Body of Knowledge
There are five pillars in SMRP's maintenance and reliability Body of Knowledge for professionals: Business & Management, Manufacturing Process Reliability, Equipment Reliability, Organization & Leadership, and Work Management. The critical knowledge, skills and abilities under each of these pillars are outlined in the CMRP Candidate Guide for Certification and Recertification.
SMRP also offers a more comprehensive reference document known as the SMRP Guide to the Maintenance and Reliability Body of Knowledge. It is available for instant online access in the SMRP Library for $75.00 (USD). Click here to purchase the document.
The CMRP Candidate Guide for Certification and Recertification contains several practice questions that are designed to familiarize applicants with CMRP exam content.
SMRPCO does not endorse any outside person, preparation course, or product in connection with the CMRP certification program. SMRP has vetted training conducted by SMRP Approved Providers who are recognized as providing best-in-class reliability and physical asset management training that aligns with SMRP's BoK and/or GFMAM's Asset Management Landscape.
