The Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM), the UK's only independent ‘not for profit’ organisation dedicated to furthering the education, recognising the achievements and advancing the profession of car fleet management, has won the inaugural Training Award at the Fleet News 2010 Awards.
Chairman of the ICFM, Roddy Graham commented: “This is the first award we have entered in our 18-year history and to win first time out is a great achievement. As a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to furthering the education and training of those involved in fleet management, this award can only help our cause in elevating the stature and professionalism of fleet management.
“This award could not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our hard working Council and I would personally like to thank each one of them, both past and present, for helping raise the profile of the ICFM and ensuring that we deliver a range of courses relevant to today’s fleet challenges.”
This new award recognises a company or organisation that is driving forward the training agenda and was introduced by Fleet News because “training is crucial to help fleets improve driver safety, reduce accidents and boost fuel efficiency and, therefore, reduce CO2 emissions.”
The judges’ citation read: “This new category produced a clear winner. ICFM is an organisation that is dedicated to the training of fleet managers and improving the professionalism of the fleet sector. It enjoys fantastic feedback from fleet managers that have completed one of its courses. The judges were unanimous in their decision.”
