NAFA Offers CAFM Boot Camp In Philadelphia, PA

Through­out the fleet man­age­ment pro­fes­sion, NAFA’s CAFM pro­gram is rec­og­nized as the indus­try stan­dard. The cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sym­bol­izes that the fleet man­ag­er is an expert in his or her field, the way a CPA is rec­og­nized in the account­ing field.

To earn the sta­tus of Cer­ti­fied Auto­mo­tive Fleet Man­ag­er (CAFM), fleet pro­fes­sion­als must demon­strate their exper­tise by pass­ing a series of com­pre­hen­sive exam­i­na­tions that cov­er eight dis­ci­plines of auto­mo­tive fleet man­age­ment. It’s not an easy cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to earn, but NAFA’s CAFM Boot Camp can help.

This fall, NAFA will be hold­ing the CAFM Boot Camp Octo­ber 17–19, 2014 at the Loews Philadel­phia Hotel, in Philadel­phia, PA. 

“Boot Camps are intense forums where cer­ti­fi­ca­tion stu­dents can get face-to-face instruc­tion on some of the more dif­fi­cult con­cepts in the course mate­ri­als,” said NAFA’s Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer, Phillip E. Rus­so, CAE. “The Boot Camp is geared towards help­ing stu­dents pre­pare for their exams, while simul­ta­ne­ous­ly help­ing them to become well-round­ed and high­ly knowl­edge­able fleet pro­fes­sion­als.”

NAFA’s CAFM Boot Camp pro­vides a full three-day expe­ri­ence devot­ed to cer­ti­fi­ca­tion study where atten­dees can ask ques­tions of the peo­ple who actu­al­ly put the pro­gram togeth­er, NAFA’s Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Board; engage in an inter­ac­tive and infor­ma­tive dis­cus­sion with oth­ers pur­su­ing the pro­gram; and will have two test­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for the price of one.

Atten­dees do not need to be enrolled in the CAFM pro­gram to ben­e­fit from the Boot Camp, although it is an excel­lent way for fleet pro­fes­sion­als to get a glimpse inside the CAFM pro­gram to see if it’s some­thing they wish to pur­sue. NAFA’s CAFM Boot Camp helps fleet pro­fes­sion­als devel­op the basic under­stand­ing of suc­cess­ful fleet man­age­ment – prin­ci­ples that will be invalu­able for them through­out their career.

Sub­jects cov­ered in the CAFM pro­gram include Fleet Infor­ma­tion Man­age­ment, Main­te­nance Man­age­ment, Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment, Vehi­cle Fuel Man­age­ment, Asset Man­age­ment, Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Finan­cial Man­age­ment, and Risk Man­age­ment. In addi­tion to the CAFM pro­gram, NAFA offers the CAFS cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, which gives can­di­dates the option of select­ing one of three dis­ci­pline sets based on their edu­ca­tion or employ­ment needs.

“Learn­ing about all aspects of fleet, even those that I don’t touch in my day-to-day job, has giv­en me the essen­tials need­ed to work in fleet just about any­where, which is a great asset,” said a recent CAFM grad­u­ate.
