Technician Certification Program


The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has launched a national campaign to promote the Certified Marine Electronics Technician (CMET) program. The campaign includes a new logo, color brochures, counter cards, window decals and other materials, which will be used by dealers and manufacturers to raise public awareness of the benefits offered by NMEA-certified technicians. The CMET program was initiated in the 1980s by NMEA in order to provide a uniform set of technical standards for marine electronics technicians.

"The theme of the CMET promotional campaign is 'Added Value, Added Confidence'," stated Cindy Ensley, NMEA executive director. "With CMET, everyone in the industry benefits," said Ensley. "Dealers have a measurable standard for technical competence in hiring and retaining skilled technicians. Manufacturers have confidence that their products are being installed and serviced by qualified technicians, reducing warranty claims and building customer satisfaction. Consumers can be sure that the products they buy are supported by dealers whose technicians are recognized by an independent professional trade association. "

To earn CMET certification, technicians must meet certain criteria and demonstrate detailed knowledge and proficiency in installation procedures, troubleshooting, block diagrams, operation, maintenance and interfacing for a broad range of marine electronics equipment. There are three levels of certification: CMET, Advanced CMET and Senior CMET.
