Message From The President

Matthew Holmes, P. Eng.


Welcome to the CMVA website.

Our association connects more than 500 professional members in Canada and around the world. Together, and in collaboration with the industry, we are working to always improve assets reliability, mainly through knowledge sharing.

The CMVA is a certification body that validates the knowledge of hundreds of machine vibration analysts through a rigorous certification process, based on ISO standards. Industry therefore ensures that it employs competent analysts, and the professional enjoys professional recognition in the performance of their duties which is also reflected on their curriculum vitae. The CMVA is currently in the process of obtaining ISO 17024 accreditation, which will attest that our certification process is compliant with ISO standards and of the highest quality possible. This accreditation will ensure all analysts certified by the CMVA provide significant added value to their employers and clients.

The CMVA is also interested in all areas of predictive maintenance and the related work and analysis techniques. A certification process in other related areas is currently under development.

Because we believe that skills in the professional environment are developed through knowledge sharing, local CMVA chapters (see our CMVA regions section) meet regularly to participate in workshops, presentations and training sessions.

The CMVA also hosts an Annual Technical Conference (ATC), which includes representatives from industry, end users, managers, product and service providers, consultants and trainers. Consult this section of our website for details of the next ATC and to secure your participation in a preeminent asset management sharing event in Canada. It goes without saying that this major industry event is open to everyone, members and non-members alike.

I invite you to visit the practical content of our site and to contact us with any questions. It is not required to be a certified analyst to be a CMVA community member, and anyone wishing to take advantage of the benefits that membership brings (including members only content) is welcome to the CMVA community.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our national of regional events!

Matthew Holmes, P. Eng.
CMVA National President
