NAFA has extended its certification program at this year’s 2019 I&E, which for the first time is conducted a few days prior to the official start of the conference and extended to a day after it is over.
NAFA expanded the CAFM certification program, CAFM U, which is the Association's week-long university-style program for advanced fleet education, according to NAFA. This year it is held April 13-18, 2019, in Louisville, Ky.
The expanded duration was designed to create more flexibility for attendees looking to balance the pursuit of becoming a Certified Automotive Fleet Manager (CAFM) or Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS) and attend I&E sessions.
With CAFM U, attendees can take up to eight focused boot camps, study with other dedicated professionals, and sit for the CAFM/CAFS exams - twice, if necessary.
Fleet management professionals who have completed NAFA's Certified Automotive Fleet Manager (CAFM) program typically earn about a 27% higher salary than those who didn't attain the certification, according to a Monster.com survey.
