The Piano Technicians Guild is an organization that does many things in the Piano Technology area. However, one of the most important aspects is the Accreditation process they offer. Through a series of 3 exams; a written exam, a technical exam, and a tuning exam, a piano technician can become a RPT(Registered Piano Technician).
An Associate Member(which I now am), is typically a technician that is working toward becoming an RPT.
This past July, I passed the written exam while I was in Chicago for the PTG Convention.
In a few weeks I’ll be attending a training session in southeastern PA, for the other 2 components of the exam.
Let the studying begin.
