Seven ICFM members attain diploma

Seven members of the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM) attained their Diploma in Car Fleet Management during 2011, six passing with distinction.

As a result, all seven automatically have become fellows of the institute. One of the new fellows, Duane Leach of Gloucestershire Constabulary, also won the ICFM Training Achievement of the Year Award at the recent annual national members’ conference held at Peugeot UK’s headquarters in Coventry.

Chairman of the ICFM Roddy Graham said: “Against a tough economic backdrop, it is rewarding to see that top fleet people do not stand still and are willing to go the extra mile in terms of individual continuous professional development.

“All seven who have achieved their Diploma in Car Fleet Management are to be congratulated on their efforts. I am sure their employers will also reap the benefits of their professional attainment.”

The seven new fellows of the ICFM who achieved their Diploma in Car Fleet Management are: Wendy Barton of But as You View; Anton Chalk of Strathclyde Police; Louise Fremont of the Ministry of Defence; Duane Leach of Gloucestershire Constabulary; Paula Maxwell of Longhurst Group; Kristy Streamer of Danwood Group; John Swain of Aviva Risk Management.

Roddy Graham continued: “Our annual national members’ conference is not only an event from which attendees can go away with new lessons to apply but is also an occasion when the Institute can recognise publicly the achievement of those who have studied for professional fleet management qualifications.

“We had 25 members attain their Introductory Certificate in Car Fleet Management and 19 their Certificate in Car Fleet Management during 2011 so our congratulations are extended to them also.”

The next ICFM advanced programme leading to the Diploma in Car Fleet Management is due to start in January 2012 and there are still a few places left. Anyone interested in participating should contact education and training manager, Stephen Hook on 01935 825576 or smh.learning@yahoo.com.
