What is an RPT

What is a Registered Piano Technician? 

A Registered Piano Technician (RPT) has passed a series of rigorous examinations on the maintenance, repair, and tuning of pianos. RPTs are professionals who have committed themselves to the continual pursuit of excellence, both in technical service and ethical conduct. 

It's never too early to start mapping out your path to become a Registered Piano Technician! 

To reach this goal you will need to pass a series of exams:

1. Written Exam (covering the foundational knowledge of our trade)
2. Tuning Exam (covering aural temperament tuning and stability) 
3. Technical Exam (covering repairs, vertical and grand regulation) 

Exams are offered at Regional and National Conventions each year, as well as through Examiners located throughout the United States (and even the world). 

Accomplishing this will ensure your confidence and success as you strive to build your career as a Piano Technician! Visit the Path to RPT Certification Page for more details.

Scholarships are available to cover the exam fees of select candidates.
