Release Date: 
06/08/2018

Its 10 years since the BVRLA launched its Fleet Consultant Programme which has helped to build the skills and capabilities of hundreds of individuals from across our member organisations throughout the decade.

Accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management, and tailored specifically for customer-facing staff, the 4-day programme is designed to give delegates a clear insight into current best practice principles for effective fleet management, including how to develop and deliver customised fleet solutions to clients. 

All the sector’s hot topics are covered in a series of interactive sessions on air quality, WLTP, connected vehicle data, responsible selling, company car taxation and more. The Programme consists of two lots of two-day sessions in the classroom as well as assignment-based learning.

Previous delegates have spoken very positively about the Programme:

“I learnt a lot. I would say it’s a very worthwhile course and even if you’ve been in the industry a long time, this course will always add to you and refresh your knowledge of things you don’t use on a daily basis.” Jason Lynch from JCT600

“It’s been very good, very informative, it’s a very good forum to share ideas amongst peers from other businesses, very open discussion and really beneficial to get other people’s viewpoints rather than being siloed in your own world. The course has been very beneficial for me, in part refreshing what I already know and perhaps what I’ve forgotten elements of, especially looking around policy and looking at how we can add value to a clients’ fleet.”
Chris Allgood - Strategic Account Manager at Volkswagen Financial Services

“We would recommend that anybody who is actively involved in the management of vehicle fleet – from car, LCV and HGV, seriously consider looking at these courses to see what we can offer as we genuinely believe there is so much change going on and particularly now all managers are really above waterline in terms of managing process, procedures and the legalisation changes, environment, legal, health and safety, duty of care – all of those elements are so important that we recommend anybody to take this course.” Peter Eldridge– Director of ICFM and Trainer

The next Programme is scheduled to take place in Amersham: 26-27 September and 17–18 October 2018.
