Certified VMRS Specialist Program



ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) is introducing a Certified Specialist Program for users of the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VMRS).

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 encourage employees to continue their VMRS education. Certified VMRS Specialists will display their certification and continue the proud tradition of implementing VMRS.

VMRS has been an important tool for successful fleet operation for more than 40 years and now users can receive acknowledgment of their expertise. The Certified VMRS Specialist Program highlights VMRS to employers and encourage employees to continue their VMRS education. It also broadens the scope and importance of VMRS to the maintenance community.


The certification testing process consists of 15 multiple choice and one essay question pertaining to the use and implementation of VMRS. The questions 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 costs $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 percent to qualify for certification status. If an applicant fails both tests, all subsequent testing will be administered at full price.

To register for testing, goto www.atabusinessolutions.com and search for Item Number T0902 or call (703) 838-7928. There is no time limit on taking the test; the renewal periosd starts on the initial date of purchase.

The VMRS Certified Specialist will join an exclusive group of committed people willing to go the extra step in improving their skills. TMC is proud to offer the VMRS community this opportunity to highlight their knowledge of VMRS.
