Key questions answered by the experts.

Q: I’m fairly new to the fleet industry and would like to do an online course. I’ve heard about one run by the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM). Do you know what this entails?

A: The course you are referring to is the ICFM Online Introductory Certificate Programme which is designed to cover the foundation principles of car fleet management.

Topics covered include, vehicle supply and disposal options, car fleet policy and car manufacturer/distribution structure.

It is aimed at new entrants in the industry such as fleet administrators, junior staff or employees with fleet as part of their remit.

Although the course is completed online, support is available on and offline and trainees can also interact with one another. The ICFM recommends about 12 hours of study time to complete the course, although this is flexible and varies depending on the student.

A job-based assignment is also required which could take an additional four to six hours to complete.

The cost for ICFM non-members is £99 or £75 for members.

Visit www.icfmonline.co.uk for more information. If you would like to win a place on this course, see next week’s Fleet News.
