About this training

This course provides managers with an introduction to the basics of civilian armoured vehicles. 

This course gives fleet managers a strong and practical understanding of the physical makeup of an armoured vehicle and the fundamental differences to a non-armoured vehicle.


Target audience

This training is designed for fleet managers who have never managed an armoured vehicle, as well as those who have.

If you currently, or plan in the future, to have a civilian armoured vehicle in your fleet, this will give you a broad-based awareness and understanding of the unique characteristics of an armoured vehicle and the key issues of how to operate the armoured vehicle in the safest and efficient way.

For managers who already have armoured vehicles in their fleet, this training will be a good refresher of what you have might have already learned.
