The group, which numbers around a dozen, will take the residential two day course which was launched at the Fleet Show in May. It is aimed at employees new to the industry, or who look after small fleets as part of their job.
The pupils are taught the basics of fleet management, key elements of fleet policy, the car manufacture and distribution structure and supply and disposal options.
James Langley, director and secretary of ICFM, said: 'Our plea to fleet managers is to think just how many of your staff would benefit from the course. It needs more support - that's our message to businesses. Often fleet management is only part of a person's job but this course is for those trying to get more out of it.'
Langley claimed the investment of time and money in the course would reap its reward in the acquired expertise of the graduates.
- The course costs £400. For more information, call 01844 261828.
