NAFA Awards First-Ever Sustainable Fleet Certificates
NAFA Fleet Management Association, an association committed to sustainable fleet education and practices, recognized graduates of its latest initiative, Sustainable Fleet Certificates, during the Association’s recent annual conference in Tampa, Florida.
Launched in April 2017, the Sustainable Fleet Certificate Program was developed through a partnership between NAFA, CALSTART, and NC State University, and is designed to educate fleet professionals in proven methods to develop sustainable fleet initiatives, providing the tools and skills that help them succeed in their sustainability goals.
NAFA President Bryan Flansburg, CAFM, recognized the first-ever certificate recipients. “You are blazing a path for all fleet managers to follow, showing them that not only is being sustainable a good thing for our planet, but it can also be a good thing for your employers,” said Flansburg.
NAFA developed the Sustainable Fleet Certificate program in response to a need uncovered after NAFA launched its Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program (SFAP). In order to earn a Sustainable Fleet Certificate, individuals had to attend a full-day training session for which they received a comprehensive study guide. The study guide provided the basis for the course materials, as well as the exam on which individuals were tested. Those who successfully completed the exam at the end of the training session earned a Sustainable Fleet Certificate.
NAFA is working to offer the sustainable certificate training in autumn 2017. For information about NAFA’s Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program, visit www.nafasustainable.org
