APWA Announces New Certified Public Fleet Professionals

March 14, 2016

The American Public Works Association (APWA) announced that four public works fleet professionals have recently received the Certified Public Fleet Professional (CPFP) certification. The CPFP certification is for those professionals who actively supervise, manage, oversee, or administer fleet services within a public or private fleet entity.

The program recently released a new policy for retired certified fleet professionals to be re-certified every five years with 20 units of professional development, including mentoring. Also added in 2015 was a new eligibility requirement giving individuals with private fleet experience an opportunity to earn a CPFP certification.

The purpose of APWA’s Public Fleet Professional Certification is to promote excellence in fleet management by advancing the knowledge and practice of public fleet professionals to benefit their communities through quality fleet services. Since its inception, a total of 100 U.S. and Canadian fleet professionals have received the CPFP certification, and the program continues to have more fleet applicants who strive for excellent public works service in their communities.

The most recent APWA Certified Public Fleet Professionals are:

  • Jared Divett, CPFP, Bernalillo County (N.M.) Fleet
  • Gilbert English, CPFP, City of Raleigh, N.C.
  • Jeff Lawver, CPFP, San Bernardino County, Calif.
  • Carlos Osterroth, CPFP, City of Medicine Hat, AB, Canada

The APWA Public Fleet Professional Certification program is designed to ensure individual competency and provide the public works industry with recognized hiring and promotion standards.
