American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council is introducing a Certified Specialist Program for users of the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards, the industry standard coding convention for tracking equipment and maintenance information.
 
The Certified VMRS Specialist Program was established to provide current VMRS users a means of demonstrating their expertise and proficiency, and to create a greater awareness of the knowledge and use of VMRS.

The program highlights the importance of VMRS to employers and encourages employees to continue their VMRS education. Certified VMRS Specialists will have an added credential that documents their expertise.
 
The certification testing process consists 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.
 
Register for testing online at http://www.atabusinessolutions.com, Item Number T0902 or call 703-838-7928. There is no time limit on taking the test; the renewal period starts on the initial date of purchase.
