Report notes CAFM holders earn 27 percent more than those in fleet who have not received the certification
NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA), the vehicle fleet industry’s largest membership association, announces that employment resource Monster.com has named NAFA’s Certified Automotive Fleet Manager (CAFM) as number nine in its rankings of the top 10 best certifications to receive to boost salaries.
The Monster report showcased that CAFM holders earn 27 percent more than those employees in fleet who have not received the certification. To compile the rankings, online salary database PayScale.com provided Monster with the best certifications and the difference in annual pay between the certification haves and have-nots.
“Earning the CAFM designation has opened doors for so many fleet professionals over the years by providing them the knowledge to excel within their fleet role, and by making it easier to work towards increased future earnings,” said NAFA CEO Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “Previous NAFA studies have shown similar results to Monster’s report, but being recognized by a leading career service provides further proof that earning a CAFM delivers strong value to each student.”
NAFA’s certification program includes different options based on the job requirements of the industry’s top fleet professionals. For fleet staff seeking to develop expertise in target areas, or begin the certification process, NAFA offers Fleet Discipline Certificates for those involved in just one or two aspects of fleet. The Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS®) designation is for those who are interested in four fleet disciplines. The flagship CAFM program covers all eight of the key fleet disciplines.
NAFA’s education solutions provide ways for fleet, mobility, and procurement professionals to earn more money and enhance career knowledge through the CAFM program. Visit www.nafa.org/f/Programs for more information.
