Demonstrating continued competence in maintenance, reliability and physical asset management through a variety of professional development activities is required to maintain your certifications. Over a three (3) year period, CMRPs and CMRTs are required to accumulate at least 50 contact hours from at least two (2) out of a possible 12 activities. Detailed information can be found in the CMRP Candidate Guide for Certification and Recertification and the CMRT Candidate Guide for Certification and Recertification.

**Recertifications that are submitted and paid for, are processed once a month after the last day of the month. The Recertification Applications are verified, certificates and letters created and then uploaded to the certificant's profile by the 15th of the next month. An email is sent with the instructions of how to access the documents. 

If you are unable to fulfill the eligibility or recertification requirements of your CMRP or CMRT, you may request to voluntarily surrender your certification. To do so, complete the SMRPCO Certification Surrender Form.
