AFP Announces 2023 Training Calendar as Fees Held

Date: 29th November 2022

The Association of Fleet Professionals’ 2023 Fleet Academy calendar has been announced, with an increased range of courses designed to help fleet managers enhance both their core skills and meet new challenges.

Paul Hollick, chair at the industry body, said that interest in training had been rising since the pandemic with this year’s courses being fully booked and, in light of current economic conditions, a board decision had been made to hold fees at their current level until at least the end of 2023.

“There’s been a definite increase in fleet managers looking to upskill to meet current and future fleet challenges such as electrification, so we are offering more training courses in 2023 with 85% more training spaces.  Also, with finances being tough at the moment for many of our members, keeping fees down seems like the right course of action. In our view, good training should be accessible and affordable.”

Making the Switch to Electric Vehicles courses will run on 25th April, 8th June, 12th September and 5th December while the complementary Transition to eLCV is scheduled for 26th April, 14th June, 13th September and 6th December.

Strategic Fleet Vehicle Management is recommended for those with responsibility for managing a vehicle fleet and consists of a trio of two day training sessions. Cohorts start on 15th February (Midlands) and 9th May (Basingstoke). The course is also available in an online, distance-learning format. Funding and Finance for Fleet Professionals is a module from the Fleet Vehicle Strategic Management programme that is also available as a standalone two day course which will run on 7th and 8th  March and 4th and 5th October.

Advanced Fleet Vehicle Management is the industry standard in professional fleet management, developing the advanced knowledge and skills required to run complex fleet operations, and is a valuable asset in developing senior fleet management teams. It starts on 21st March (Midlands) and consists of eight training days.

Finally, Introductory Fleet Vehicle Management is designed for anyone who is new to the fleet industry, developing in their role, or who needs a refresher in fleet basics. It can be started anytime as online, self-paced learning.
