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. Only RPTs are authorized by The Piano Technicians Guild to display the logo containing the words "Registered Piano Technician."

An Associate is a member who has not passed the RPT examinations. Associates may be studying piano technology and working toward RPT status, or may be piano retailers, rebuilders, refinishers or other specialists. Associate members are identified by the logo containing the word "Associate."

The Piano Technicians Guild is a non-profit, international organization of piano technicians. The Guild's purpose is to promote skilled piano service by providing educational opportunities and an examination to qualify members as Registered Piano Technicians.
