AFP secures IMI approval

The Association of Fleet Professionals Fleet Academy has been approved as a training centre by the Institute of The Motor Industry.

The academy was launched at the start of 2022 as an evolution of the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM), with the training based on the same course structures, professional trainers and range of resources.

Ronnie Gillman, training manager at the AFP, said: “We are delighted to have become an IMI Approved Centre. The aims and objectives of the AFP are closely aligned with those of the IMI and it is an important seal of approval. We work to elevate the standards of management in the fleet sector and help the current and next generation of fleet leaders put new skills and knowledge into action.

“We want learning and development to be available to everyone in the fleet industry – there are no qualification pre-requisites to attend our courses. They are designed to get everyone involved, enabling delegates to develop their professional skills, gain recognition and further their career.”

Steve Nash, CEO of the IMI, said: “The fleet sector plays a fundamental role in the UK economy. The IMI is, therefore, delighted to see the commitment being made by the Association of Fleet Professionals to elevate the sector’s standards with its Fleet Academy which is now an IMI Approved Centre. We look forward to working together to help extend continual professional development across the sector in the years to come.”
