Patrick T. Barrett, MPA/CAFM® is Director of University of Nebraska Transportation Services
“Over time after earning my CAFM®, I’ve realized that even though I manage a public fleet, there are many aspects I learned through certification that are geared to private fleet management that can be applied to the public side,” Patrick said. “Simply put, running the University of Nebraska fleet like a business instead of a public agency allows for efficiencies and improvements that otherwise could not have been achieved. Without the knowledge gained through certification, I likely wouldn’t have realized the options and opportunities that are available for fleets.
“I truly believe that without the CAFM® I wouldn’t have my present position. Being a Certified Automotive Fleet Manager was the one defining difference between myself and the competition for my job.”
