SMT's staff

SMT specializes in client-tailored services because we understand that each credentialing agency is unique. Regardless of all the technology, systems, psychometrics, procedures, and processes available, we understand that certification is first-and-foremost a people business. Candidates taking tests, Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) creating items, and clients dealing with vendors are all human interactions.
