The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) is introducing a new training course for 2024.

The Fleet Vehicle Management Foundation is said to be designed for people in fleet administrator, co-ordinator and customer service roles, and suitable for those employed by both fleet operators and fleet service providers.

AFP training manager Ronnie Gillman said: “The Foundation training sits between our established Introductory and Strategic courses on our Fleet Vehicle Management pathway. 

“Some of those interested in attending will ultimately want to become fleet managers but others will see their long-term career very much in the administrative side of car and van operations which is, of course, an essential part of the industry in itself.

“The course was born out of training forum, where members highlighted that there was a real need for a course aimed at fleet administrators. A number of other members have asked for this course so we are anticipating high levels of interest. 

“It meets a need that has probably existed across the fleet industry for some time.”
