Course Overview

Reliability is imperative to remain competitive in the world market. Reactive maintenance, poor repair techniques, re-occurring downtime must be eliminated. This can be accomplished by understanding the techniques learned in the training course.

This course is based on the 4 domains of SMRP’s Body of Knowledge designed specifically for Maintenance Technicians. Each person will learn the techniques of a Reliable Technician and be able to eliminate many failures at any operation.

Key Learning

The CMRT exam tests competency and knowledge of specific tasks of four (4) domains:

  • Maintenance Practices
  • Preventative and Predictive Maintenance
  • Troubleshooting and Analysis
  • Corrective Maintenance

Who should attend?

  • Maintenance Technician
  • Maintenance Engineer
  • Reliability Technician

CMRT Certification

The Certified Maintenance & Reliability Technician (CMRT) program is the leading credentialing program for the knowledge, skills and abilities of maintenance and reliability technicians.

The certification assesses the knowledge and skills of those responsible for preventative, predictive and corrective maintenance – multi-skilled individuals who play a critical role in the success of organizations worldwide. Earning the CMRT credential indicates that you have achieved a level of ability consistent with the requirements for competence on the job as a multi-skilled maintenance and reliability technician.

Day 1

Domain 1 – Maintenance Practices

  • Adherence to safety, health, and environmental standards and polices.
  • Work with production personal to coordinate maintenance activities to ensure that appropriate Lockout/Tagout procedures, Process Overview, and Work Permits are in place and followed.
  • Perform appropriate lockout/tagout procedures to ensure a zero-energy state exists prior to performing work on an asset.
  • Prior to preforming maintenance, preform an inspection on maintenance tools and equipment to ensure conformance to established standards/guidelines, extend life of maintenance tools and equipment, and ensure safe operation of maintenance tools and equipment.
  • Use maintenance tools and equipment in accordance w

Day 2

Domain 1 – Maintenance Practices (Continued)

  • Utilize measuring tools in a manner that will ensure accurate measurements are taken properly.
  • This section includes basic math, calibration of tools, conversion of measuring and engineering units, etc.
  • Handle all maintenance material and parts using established best practices and in accordance with established standards/procedures to reduce the potential of damaging parts or assets.
  • Perform appropriate housekeeping to ensure adherence to site standards/procedure, and ensure a safe and orderly job site.
  • Document maintenance activities properly in the maintenance management system. Record the appropriate asset maintenance history to support future planning and scheduling efforts and root cause failure analysis efforts

Day 3

Domain 2 – Preventive and Predictive Maintenance

  • Preform preventive and predictive maintenance to maximize asset reliability.
  • Apply predictive maintenance techniques based on asset observation and data analysis.
  • Lubricate assets in a manner to ensure reliable performance. Includes filtering systems, lubricationspecifications, lubrication principles, lubrication routes, etc.
  • Align and perform alignment checks on rotating assets to ensure reliable performance and prevent damage. Includes discussion of so foot, proper shimming, growth due to heat, etc.
  • Perform checks on safety systems and devices to ensure compliance with company safety, health, and environmental policies. Understand the consequences of bypassing safety systems and operation of safety systems.

Day 4

Domain 3 – Troubleshooting and Analysis

  • Gather information related to a maintenance request by reviewing work order history, interviewing operations personnel, etc. in order to determine the general nature of the problem.
  • Verify the problem is valid by performing the appropriate troubleshooting activities and reviewing historical and operational information.
  • Obtain appropriate technical documentation for use in troubleshooting.
  • Investigate previous maintenance activities by reviewing asset history in order to facilitate any troubleshooting activities.
  • Identify the cause of the problem using a systematic process of elimination.

Day 5

Domain 4 – Corrective Maintenance

  • Verify troubleshooting analysis by disassembling and inspecting asset components. Confirm that the identified corrective action is appropriate.
  • Repair the malfunction by performing the required corrective maintenance tasks in accordance with best maintenance practices in order to return the asset to the desired operating condition.
  • Monitor the asset a er it has been repaired to determine if the repair was successful.
  • Release repaired asset for return to service using standard operating procedures.appropriate.
  • Monitor the asset a er it has been repaired to determine if the repair was successful.
  • Release repaired asset for return to service using standard operating procedures.
