NTEA, NAFA enter into endorsement agreement


NTEA announced that it has entered into an endorsement agreement with the NAFA Fleet Management Association whereby each association will cross-promote the value of each organization’s certification programs to benefit the membership of both organizations.

“The agreement we entered into with NAFA strengthens the link between two organizations that have served the work truck and fleet industries for decades,” says Jim Carney, NTEA executive director. “We constantly seek opportunities to build alliances with other industry associations to enrich the value we offer our member companies. To this end, we are endorsing two NAFA programs that promote the efficient and informed purchasing of work trucks, and are pleased to work with NAFA to further promote our Member Verification Program.”

Specifically, the agreement stipulates that NTEA will endorse the following training and certification programs developed and administered by NAFA: Certified Automotive Fleet Manager (CAFM); and Certified Automotive Fleet Specialist (CAFS). CAFM and CAFS programs include, among other things, self-instruction manuals, in-person seminars, reference materials and certification examinations.

In turn, NAFA will bring awareness to the benefits of the Member Verification Program (MVP) developed and administered by NTEA. MVP status promotes the production and sale of work trucks by companies that take significant steps to implement specific business and quality standards and quality processes, and to comply with certain applicable federal regulations.
