FORS has announced the 2020 schedule for its practitioner training sessions.

Its series of ten workshops are each delivered by transport experts at key venues across the UK, giving fleet operators the tools and knowledge to embed FORS best practice across their business.

The workshops cover various aspects of fleet management, specifically designed to equip delegates with the tools they need to make their operations safer, smarter and eco-friendly.

Delegates attending all 10 workshops become qualified FORS practitioners, joining an elite group of over 1,900 individuals who have reached this FORS status.

FORS manager Sonia Hayward said: “FORS supports personal development and best practice and having over 1,900 qualified FORS practitioners is a huge achievement for the industry and a reflection of the popularity of the workshops. 

“The FORS practitioner workshops provide essential information for managers to better execute their daily responsibilities and we are really pleased to offer the courses at venues across the UK.”
