FORS has unveiled its new training qualification ‘Advanced Practitioner’ in response to increased demand from fleet managers seeking advanced professional development opportunities.
The new qualification builds on the popular FORS Practitioner training programme, which already boasts over 3,400 graduates and saw the addition of five new modules earlier this year.
To achieve Advanced Practitioner status, fleet managers must complete all 15 training modules offered by FORS – five more than is required to become a base-level FORS Practitioner.
A range of topics are covered within the FORS Practitioner training portfolio, including advanced risk management, sustainable fleet operations and advanced driver training. All modules have been specifically developed for transport professionals looking to advance their professional development and demonstrate their commitment to road safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
Existing FORS Practitioners are only required to complete their remaining five courses to achieve Advanced Practitioner status, but this must be achieved prior to the expiry date of their current qualification.
FORS Concession Director, Geraint Davies, said:
“As a FORS Practitioner and former transport operator, I understand the value of training and professional development in our fast-paced sector. FORS Practitioner has always been the standard setter for dedicated fleet professionals who want to elevate their career, positively impact their business and drive standards in the industry. With the introduction of Advanced Practitioner, we’re once again raising the bar for road safety, efficiency and environmental protection. We’ve invested heavily in our training programme over the past year, and the enthusiastic response we’ve had from ambitious fleet managers since we launched is encouraging.”
