The NMPA offers several levels of certification to promote quality and professionalism in the propeller business. Aluminum, stainless and inboard certifications are the three currently offered. Certifications are developed and administered by the NMPA Certification Committee and testing can be done right in your own shop.
Generally, certification requires both written and practical tests to establish the knowledge level and competency of propeller repair professionals. An 80% or higher score is required on the written exams before taking the practical exam. A NMPA certification establishes that repair work will be undertaken according to industry standards, shop management is committed to a professional code of conduct, the repair professional has received the necessary technical training for the products they sell and service, that certified shops are willing to offer warranty support for the products they sell, and that they are committed to customer satisfaction.
NMPA believes that Certification provides its members with a method to highlight their efforts to meet or exceed industry standards, while offering the public a basis for evaluating the service provider.
