Fleet certification is more attainable than ever.

Fleet professionals eager to earn a Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS) designation can now take advantage of a new program from NAFA

”The CAFS program has been in existence for several years,” said Phillip E. Russo, CAE, NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer. ”However, in the past, individuals enrolled in the CAFS program had to choose one of three ‘streams’ that dictated the disciplines in which they were tested. Now, individuals can choose any four disciplines and, if they pass those exams, will earn their CAFS designation.”

The menu of disciplines from which individuals may choose is:

•Asset Management, which includes subjects such as vehicle selection, acquisition, and remarketing
•Business Management, which includes law, policies, procedures, emergency operations, and strategic partnering
•Financial Management, which includes, personal use, lease vs. buy vs. reimbursement, budgeting, and lifecycle cost analysis
•Information Management, which includes information systems, telematics, and data management
•Maintenance Management, which includes vehicle technologies, shop operations and staffing, and inventory management
•Professional Development, which includes leadership skills, business communications, and ethics
•Risk Management, which includes insurance, driver training, and crash management
•Vehicle Fuel Management, which includes environmental issues, fuel card programs, and conventional and alternative fuels
