Tailored to fleet managers
The modules are aimed at members and non-members alike who wish to update their knowledge or familiarise themselves with hot fleet topics.
The Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM) has launched the first in a series of one day Fleet Awareness Modules, which will look at Duty of Care Management and will be held at the AA headquarters in Basingstoke on May 20.
Chairman of the ICFM, Paul Hollick, commented: “The ICFM Council wished to supplement our core competence-based training currently offered to members with fleet awareness modules on hot topics of interest and relevance to car and LCV fleet operators, irrespective of their level of fleet experience.
“We canvassed our members last year and they came up with a list of the top six issues they were interested in. The idea is that each Fleet Awareness Module will address a given topic within a day. We are delighted to offer the opportunity to individuals to hone their skills and keep up to date on best practice.”
The Fleet Awareness Modules will provide an opportunity for participants to undergo a post-event knowledge assessment, leading to the presentation of a Fleet Awareness Module certificate relating to the module content on the day.
The modules are also seen as a way of introducing non-ICFM members to the benefits of membership and longer duration, more intensive training and the six new ICFM Fleet Awareness Modules are:
- Accident Management
- Driving Down Fleet Costs
- Duty of Care Management
- Fuel Management
- Grey Fleet Management
- Influencing Driver Behaviour.
The first Fleet Awareness Module on offer will provide background to Duty of Care which will include an overview of the key risks and consequences of negligence, the implications for drivers and fleet operators, outline risk identification principles and framework, and offer a risk containment process model. The one day session will include case studies and group task presentations and plenary reviews.
