Each year as we attend the many industry conferences we have the pleasure of seeing so many of our Alliance program members and meeting individuals from organizations that are interested in becoming accredited. As we talk with individuals from various transport programs, inevitably they want to know what makes NAAMTA accreditation different than other accreditation companies. I’m glad you asked. To answer this question, let me tell you about NAAMTA.

NAAMTA was founded on some very important fundamental principles. The first was to create an accreditation environment where a collaborative and supportive relationship could exist between the transport organization and the accreditation service. Our motto, “Partnership for Lifesaving Excellence” reflects just that. I am confident that, if asked, our Alliance members feel they DO have an approachable and invested partner in NAAMTA. 

Secondly, and I believe just as important, is to provide an accreditation program that promotes and facilitates company behaviors that demonstrate improving excellence and professionalism. NAAMTA Accreditation is not an event; it is a continuous and ongoing program. By providing the necessary information, processes and tools, NAAMTA Accreditation instructs and enables companies to implement internal changes, find new direction and improve their services to their communities and customers. 

So what is it that makes NAAMTA different? It's how the job is done.

     Go to the people...                                                                                                          work with them,                                                                                                           learn from them. 

     Start with what they have,                                                                                                Build on what they know.

     But of the best leaders,                                                                                                    when the task is accomplished,                                                                                     the work complete,                                                                                                       the people will say, "We did it."
