TMC Introduces New Certified VMRS Specialist Program
January 28, 2014
ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council is introducing a Certified Specialist Program for users of the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards. VMRS is the industry standard coding convention for tracking equipment and maintenance information.
The Certified VMRS Specialist Program provides current VMRS users a means of demonstrating their expertise and proficiency. It also encourages others to increase their knowledge and use of VMRS.
The program highlights the importance of VMRS to employers and encourages employees to continue their VMRS education.
The certification testing process will consist of 15 multiple choice and one essay question pertaining to the use and implementation of VMRS. The questions will assess an applicant’s knowledge of the VMRS coding structure and guidelines. The certification is valid for two years; applicants must retest to keep their status valid.
The certification testing will cost $100 for ATA/TMC members; $125 for non-members. In cases of a failing grade, one free retest will be administered. An applicant must obtain a passing grade of 80% to qualify for certification status. If an applicant fails both tests, all subsequent testing will be administered at full price.
