Who We Are

Practitioners from 18 different companies created the Society for Maintenance & Reliability ‎Professionals (SMRP) in 1992 to actively promote maintenance and reliability within their field ‎and to the public. Following the successful launch of the society, the inaugural SMRP Annual ‎Conference took place in 1993 in Nashville, Tennessee. The event brought together ‎practitioners to network, exchange ideas and learn about the latest tools and technologies.‎

Less than a decade later, members developed the Certified Maintenance & Reliability ‎Professional (CMRP) certification to serve as a benchmark for maintenance and reliability best ‎practices. The first CMRP exam was administered at the annual conference in Cleveland, Ohio, ‎in 2000, laying the preliminary groundwork for a recognized certification program. The CMRP ‎has since been accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB).‎

Nearly 30 years after its formation, SMRP’s reach has expanded to over 60 countries across six ‎continents. Membership has grown to over 7,000 individuals, and there are more than 5,000 ‎Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (CMRP), Certified Maintenance & Reliability ‎Technicians (CMRT) and Certified Asset Management Assessors (CAMA) practitioners ‎worldwide. ‎

As the premier provider of educational opportunities, networking events and resources for ‎maintenance, reliability, and physical asset management professionals, SMRP is committed to ‎conducting business with a member focus. SMRP develops and implements a multi-year ‎strategic plan directly aligned with the organization's mission, vision, and values.
