About this training

This course provides Fleet Managers with an introduction to a systematic approach to vehicle accident reporting and accident lessons learned as it relates to the use of civilian armoured vehicles.

Upon completion of this course, managers will have a strong understanding of:

  • Vehicle accidents and collisions and their significant global impact;
  • A methodical approach to a vehicle accident reporting system,
  • Templates to implement a methodical, mature and detailed vehicle accident reporting system; and
  • The practical use of the accident data and how it can be used to reduce the risk of future accidents.

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.

The course is very good in the way it explains how to go through a strict reporting methodology. I particularly liked the lesson learned spreadsheet.

Having been involves in vehicle accidents, I can see the benefit of the detailed approach to the investigation and reporting of the accident. It will certainly help me in the future

Michael B.

The templates for the reporting of accidents is very helpful and I will be using them for our fleet.

Why is accident reporting and lesson learned analysis so important for civilian armoured vehicles?

Civilian armoured vehicle may look like an ordinary soft skin vehicle. But to be sure, they are unique and very expensive security assets.

Unfortunately, accidents and collisions do occur. It is the responsibility of drivers to play an integral role in the reporting, recording and analysing how these events occurred. And most importantly, understand what can be done in the future to minimise the risk of them happening again.
