About ATMT Boiler Safety & Maintenance CertificationTM

The ATMT Boiler Safety & Maintenance CertificationTM designation sets the standard for our mission of Creating a Better, Safer, and more Efficient Maintenance Workforce! Obtaining certification from the nation’s leader in maintenance training will provide you with the documentation you need to positively demonstrate your knowledge about boiler maintenance and safety practices.

The exam is a timed test, taken under the live supervision of a proctor, which ensures the validity and consistency of the testing process and gives credibility to the final score.

The exam is made up of 50 multiple choice questions taken from a larger bank of questions, and the order of questioning may vary from test to test to ensure validity. A score of 70% is required to pass the exam and receive AT certification. Most people who study and have received prior training will score in the 70% to 85% range, which is considered “good” for this test. There will be a number of people who fail however, giving the exam even more credibility for those who pass it.

This certification may be used by the employer as part of an overall worker safety and maintenance program, for assessing the needs of workers, and can be used by the individual to demonstrate his knowledge to an employer and give him an edge over other workers.


Registration and Q&A review with proctor:   8:00am – 8:50am
Testing Starts: 9:00am
Testing Ends: 10:00am

This is a timed exam that will start at 9:00am sharp whether students are prepared and in their seats or not. Individuals arriving late will not be allowed to take the exam. Please arrive at least 20 minutes before testing starts!


Students must know boiler safety and maintenance prior to taking the exam. This is not a training course.

Individuals must have a good understanding of the material in their study guide prior to coming in to take the test and should not expect to pass it without having first completed an American Trainco Boiler training program or other formal training program. Some experienced individuals may be able to pass the exam without prior training; however, it is not uncommon for “experienced” individuals to fail.

Those seeking certification should come prepared and ready to take the exam! Refunds are not allowed for people who start the test but then discover they aren’t ready.

If you have not yet received formal boiler training Go to the Boiler Training Schedule now.

Is certification in boiler safety & maintenance required?

No. Certification in boiler safety & maintenance is not a legal requirement. Like “CEU’s” (Continuing Education Credits), certification in this area can mean different things to different people, businesses or other entities. Since there is no legal requirement for this certification it is up to the employer to determine its value for their workplace and employees, and may be adopted by the employer as part of a an overall safety or maintenance program.

This certification is not a replacement or substitute for boiler licensing that may be required in some states or other governing jurisdictions. It is intended only as a way for individuals to demonstrate their boiler safety and maintenance knowledge to their employer and does not guarantee that a person passing the exam or receiving the ATMT Boiler Safety & Maintenance CertificationTM designation is qualified for the work they are doing. That responsibility and determination belongs to the employer or governing state or jurisdiction. The ATMT Boiler Safety & Maintenance CertificationTM is designed to assist an employer in making that determination.

What You Will Take Home

Individuals successfully passing the certification exam will receive an 8-1/2 x 11 certificate suitable for framing along with a laminated certification card you can carry with you.

All student scores are permanently stored in accordance with ACE (American Council on Education) guidelines. Transcripts and replacement cards & certificates may be obtained by calling American Trainco customer service.
