This is a two day residential course designed as an introduction to good fleet management in simple non-technical language.  We aim to enhance key skills needed for today’s modern fleet department for both administrators and new managers alike.

  • Background – the major cost types, causes and magnitude
  • Main operational options – fleet, schemes, grey fleet
  • Vehicle selection and acquisitions
  • Maintenance control and vehicle warranties
  • Environmental issues/ Green Fleet options

  • Fleet administration, monitoring and reporting


Is this is the right course for me?


The Basic Fleet Management course has been carefully designed to meet the needs of :

  • Fleet Managers with less than 18 months experience, and Fleet Administrators
  • Employees with multiple responsibilities which include fleet activities
  • Those involved in fleets undergoing significant change
  • Employees who have only been employed in one part of the fleet management spectrum and are now assuming wider responsibilities


We try to ensure that there is a good delegate mix on each course from both Public and Private sectors, as delegates derive great benefit of from sharing their experiences and expertise.  In addition to the formal tuition, many delegates keep in touch both with us and with their fellow delegates over the long term.

A copy of the current full syllabus can be accessed through the menu bar on the left hand side.
