ICFM to create specialist training programmes

THE Institute of Car Fleet Management has offered to create bespoke training programmes for police fleet managers to bring important skills to constabularies. Steve Hook, training and education manager for the institute told police delegates from around the country that they could adapt the courses available to suit police needs.

Gareth Armstrong, fleet manager for Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary, is taking the ICFM diploma, Sam Sloane, of Strathclyde Constabulary, has completed the diploma and is now a fellow of the institute, and Richard Flint, fleet controller of Durham Constabulary, is one of the first four winners of places in the trailblazing RAC Scholarship Awards Scheme, run in conjunction with ICFM.

Delegates heard they could take qualifications in three stages. First, the introductory level, followed by intermediate level, which gives a certificate in car fleet management and finally the advanced level, ending with a diploma after around 18 months study.
