Designed for Aid & Development Organisations

In the Fleet Management Fundamentals course, we will teach the foundation principles of fleet management in humanitarian context in order to increase the proficiency and expertise of humanitarian professionals working at an operational level.

By the end of the course, you will:

  1. Determine the right number and types of vehicles for your operation
  2. Implement strategies to reduce fleet costs
  3. Understand the root causes of your crashes
  4. Introduce and monitor KPIs that are related to your organisation’s priorities
  5. Get insight and lower your vehicle emissions

Virtual Training

You get 20 hours of training, access to many fleet management resources and during the training, we will help you make a 6-month action plan linked to your organisation’s priorities (cost reduction, road safety, Coronavirus response etc.)

Successful participants will receive a Certificate of Participation following the training.

Participation is required in order to receive the certificate of completion. Virtual learners must complete all required elements of the trainings (which includes self-paced lessons, live lessons, exercises and group work).

Trainings available in May and June

We work hard to avoid changes to planned trainings, but occasionally we may have to change the date of scheduled trainings. We will notify you one week before before the training start date with the option to reschedule for a future date.

Live Sessions with Fleet Managers around the World

We work with group sizes of 10 -12 participants per training. Registration does not guarantee a spot. We will review the registrations received and contact you via email.

The expected workload is about 4 hours per day during a 5-day period:

  • 2 hours is self-study, which consists of completing e-learning modules, solving real-life case studies, preparing exercises
  • Twice a day, we will have 1-hour “live” discussions (via videoconferencing). These sessions will take place in the morning and afternoon and are mandatory to attend to receive your certificate at the end of the training.

One week before the training, we will share with you the exact timings of the live sessions. We determine these based on location of the majority of participants. For participants calling in from Southeast Asia, it might mean that the live sessions take place in the afternoon and evening, thereby allowing you to balance this with your ongoing activities.

Participation Fees

The fees to participate in the training are USD 300. Fleet Forum is a not-for-profit membership association. We are able to offer such capacity building activities through donor funding and charging participants a portion of the costs.

Member organisations get a 10% discount. Is your organisation a Fleet Forum member? Click here to find out.
