NATMI Certification – why pursue it?

Our focus is on improving fleet workforce performance and productivity. The North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI) exists to improve the performance and productivity of the professionals directly responsible for effective fleet and driver performance – Safety Directors, Maintenance Managers, and Commercial Driver Trainers.

Through its training and professional certification programs, NATMI helps transportation professionals develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to:

reduce vehicle accidents

reduce employee injuries

control costs associated with vehicle maintenance

recruit and retain qualified drivers

avoid fines through proper regulatory compliance, and

present a favorable public image




The NATMI designation adds a level of credibility to my position. I find that when others in the industry see the CDS or CDT, they know that "I know".

As stated above, it lends credibility. When I'm representing my company out in the field, others in the industry know I have achieved a certain level of expertise.

Whether you are brand new to the industry, or advancing your way through, take the courses you need. The experience you gain will be drawn upon throughout your career, and in a way, you become part of a fraternity.

The connections you make on the courses, and as a result of your designation and certification, are invaluable.
