- The National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) have partnered to develop and advance the automotive service and fleet management professions.The ASE/NAFA alliance calls for both organizations to mutually recognize, encourage, and promote the certification of automotive service professionals by ASE and fleet administrators by NAFA. The NAFA Certified Automotive Fleet Manager program attests to a fleet manager’s expertise in such areas as asset management, business strategies, finance, maintenance, safety and risk management, and information systems. “ASE and NAFA recognize that each organization offers resources and services that complement the goals and mission of the other organization,” said Patricia Serratore, ASE’s group vice president, industry relations. “Service professionals and fleet administrators will benefit from the synergies of our strategic alliance.”ASE measures the skills and knowledge of automotive service professionals through its national voluntary testing and certification program. By passing difficult, national tests, ASE-certified technicians prove their technical competence to themselves, their employers, and their customers.
