Course programme

The Introductory Certificate in Car Fleet Management programme is designed to cover the foundation principles of car fleet management. It is pitched at new entrants to the profession - either administrators in fleet or HR departments of businesses managing their own fleets or specialist staff working for fleet service support providers or dealer-based sales staff responsible for corporate fleet business.

In addition to providing a background on how fleet management has evolved, the programme will enable new entrants to begin to understand what's involved in developing a fleet policy relevant to the needs of the business, the importance of ‘asset management' and provide a pointer to fleet-related roles likely to emerge in the future.

Interactive features

The programme is interactive. It provides opportunities for trainees to obtain advice and guidance on the principles covered from a remote trainer, obtain feedback on their learning progress to date and to test their learning through a series of self-assessment quizzes.

Trainees can dip in and out of the programme to suit the time they have available for learning although the use of a study plan (template included) is advised to maximise learning opportunities.

Full guidance on how to navigate the way around the features of the programme is provided after the initial log-in stage.

Trainee support

On and off-line trainer support is available to anyone undertaking the programme. Support could take the form of clarifying the programme framework and/or principles, assisting students in applying the principles to their own role or providing guidance on the job-based assignment. Trainees can also interact with one another as necessary. A set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) is included in the functionality of the programme.

Assessment and external recognition

Assessment of competence is via one job-based assignment submitted for assessment upon completion of the programme.

The programme format, along with the paper-based distance learning and trainer-led (Key Start) versions, leads to the Introductory Certificate in Car Fleet Management which is an award externally endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). External endorsement requires students to register with the ILM.

Length of study

The programme requires about eight to 12 hours of study time to complete, although this figure could vary depending on the students learning style preference and experience in a fleet-related role. The job-based assignment could take an additional four to six hours to complete.
