Establishing Industry-Wide Standards for DME/CRT Repair Technicians through Industry Collaboration

DMERT Group is a non-profit certification body tasked with setting the benchmarking for durable medical equipment and complex rehab repair training standards through industry collaboration. Industry members work together to establish a clear set of guidelines on what is expected of DME/CRT industry repair technicians, how to evaluate if individuals meet the requirements and provide a means of educational support for those who fall short of qualifying. This initiative and certifying body have a foundation of transparent industry collaboration, including technicians, providers, manufacturers and other industry members.
