CAFM Commission

NAFA authorized the creation of the CAFM Commission in April 2022 to independently oversee all matters related to the Certified Automotive Fleet Manager (CAFM®) and ancillary Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS®) credentials.

With NAFA’s commitment to industry-leading certification, the CAFM Commission will spearhead further growth, validation, and credibility of the CAFM credential for fleet managers, fleet industry professionals, and their employers. In its role, the Commission will establish the standards, content, and operating policies of the CAFM credential, adapting and evolving the standards of performance excellence for fleet professionals regularly to sustain the relevancy, quality, and high expectations of value for which it has become known.

The CAFM Commission is currently seeking volunteers. Submit your interest today!
