ARPT is the recognised qualification of the Australasian Registered Piano Technician.

ARPT membership was introduced in 2006 and the qualification is only awarded to technicians who have passed a comprehensive assessment of their skills. Any person wishing to join the Association must pass the ARPT examination to gain full membership.

The examination consists of four sections:

The exam is rigorous and may take up to 12 hours to complete and is administered by experienced ARPT members. The successful candidate is then permitted to use the letters ARPT in their advertising.

ARPT’s are professionals who have committed themselves to the continual pursuit of excellence in both technical service and ethical conduct and who continue to enhance their knowledge and skills through affiliation with other technicians, manufacturers, suppliers and associations.

Piano owners are encouraged to use technicians who have the ARPT accreditation noted on the membership lists as assurance of their underlying skills. Your piano is unique and an ARPT is able to evaluate your instrument and provide an appropriate maintenance program based on your individual needs.

All members of the APTTA are bound by a Code of Ethics.
