"The Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) is the world's premier source of expertise in piano service and technology. The mission of the Piano Technicians Guild is to promote the highest possible standards of piano service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.
Our rigorous technical examinations are used to certify piano technicians as Registered Piano Technicians (RPT). The RPT credential shows that the technician is a professional who can competently perform normal piano tuning, service and repair. We encourage you to find an RPT to service your piano!
The field of piano technology is an unregulated trade. Therefore the Piano Technicians Guild has set its own standards of quality for piano technicians. The Guild has two types of members: Registered Piano Technicians and Associates. PTG membership is open to all individuals 18 years of age and older with a professional or avocational interest in piano technology. The title of "Registered Piano Technician" must be earned by passing a series of examinations."
