NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA) announced that the National Property Management Association (NPMA) and the Canadian Association of Fleet Supervisors (CAFS) joined the ever-growing list of organizations partnering with NAFA.
NAFA’s agreement with NPMA calls for the associations to collaborate on educational endeavors and mutually support each other’s individual certification programs.
NAFA’s Certified Automotive Fleet Management (CAFM®) program and Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS) program are self-study courses that educate fleet professionals on the various disciplines of fleet management including asset management, business management, financial management, information management, maintenance management, professional development, risk management, and vehicle fuel management.
NPMA’s programs include: Certified Professional Property Specialist (new to property management); Certified Professional Property Administrator (an active CPPS certification, worked in property management for at least three years in seven of the functional areas of property management); and Certified Professional Property Manager (an active CPPA certification, have worked in property for at least six years, in seven of the functional areas of property management, and four years of managerial experience). These programs focus on property management responsibilities including: acquisition, audits, consumption, contracts and agreements closure, environmental considerations, maintenance, physical inventory, receiving, risk management, utilization, and valuation, among others.
“This agreement will be mutually beneficial for both NAFA members and NPMA members,” said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE.
“This is certainly a ‘win-win’ for both our organizations,” said NPMA National President Marcia D. Whitson, CPPM, CF. “I very much look forward to working with (NAFA)… this collaborative agreement will positively affect the fleet management community as a whole.”
NAFA’s agreement with CAFS gives Canadian fleet managers access to NAFA’s CAFM program while providing NAFA exclusive endorsement of the program.
“The Canadian Association of Fleet Supervisors is very pleased to have the opportunity to work NAFA. We feel that there are significant benefits to both associations with this partnership,” said CAFS President and NAFA Member Kelley Crozier, a student in the CAFM®/S® program. “The world class training offered by NAFA will be a special benefit for our membership.”
