Study Materials

A foundational belief in developing the CMRP and CMRT examinations 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 exams, such as the SMRP Body of Knowledge, practice questions and recommended readings.
SMRPCO Candidate Handbook 
This guide was developed to help candidates apply and take the CMRP or CMRT exam. It also provides in-depth information on the application process, exam administration, and the rules and procedures for maintaining a SMRPCO certification after an individual achieves it.
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!

Third-Party Training
SMRPCO does not endorse any outside person, preparation course, or product in connection with the certification programs.
