Fleet training organisation ICFM has announced details of its tutor-led Diploma (advanced level) Programme for fleet managers.

Completion of the Programme leads to an ICFM Diploma in Car and LCV Fleet Management, an externally endorsed qualification and a key criterion towards attaining Fellowship of the Institute.

It comprises four two-day tutor-led advanced study modules, coupled with three role-based projects which are completed throughout the duration of the course covering an approximate 18-month period. The Programme concludes with a written dissertation following the completion of the last module.

Dates and course content for the four modules are: Module one (advanced interpersonal skills), October 15 and 16, 2019; module two (advanced vehicle acquisition and disposal), December 3 and 4, 2019; module three, advanced administration and control, March 10 and 11, 2020; module four (advanced finance), June 16 and 17, 2020.

Presenting a significant development opportunity for fleet decision-makers, ICFM says its Diploma (advanced level) Programme is one of the most comprehensive learning platforms available to people engaged in the strategic management of a vehicle fleet.

The host venue for all modules is the training facility at the Tamworth headquarters of Jaama.

ICFM, formerly the Institute of Car Fleet Management, the not-for-profit training and accreditation body was launched in 1992 with a remit to raise the standards of fleet professionals.

Its qualifications are viewed as the de facto stamp of approval for employees with fleet responsibility whether as full-time professional fleet managers or as part of an HR, finance or procurement role. They are also increasingly being viewed as job-critical for employees working in the fleet service support arena, including at contract hire and leasing companies, fleet management organisations and in dealer-based corporate fleet departments.

Current chairman Paul Hollick has set a goal of professionalising the fleet sector in much the same way as solicitors and accountants.

Since formation, ICFM has trained some 2,000 people and its courses are now oversubscribed.
