Registered Piano Technicians are professionals who have committed themselves to the continual pursuit of excellence, both in technical service and ethical conduct. A Registered Piano Technician has passed a series of three rigorous examinations that assess the knowledge and skills required to tune, maintain, and repair pianos. These exams are administered by the Piano Technicians Guild, (PTG), an international organization of skilled and experienced crafts people. The Piano Technicians Guild has established the only set of standards in North America for the tuning, maintenance, and repair skills needed to qualify as a Registered Piano Technician.
Registered Piano Technicians continue to enhance their knowledge and skills through affiliation with other technicians, manufactures, suppliers and teaching associations. Only Registered Piano Technicians are authorized to use the trademarked logo and emblem shown at the right.
