FTA publishes national transport manager qualifications22 April 2016

The FTA (Freight Transport Association) has launched new qualifications for fleet managers, stating that it wants to professionalise the industry and create “a clear career path for the role”.

The Commercial Vehicle Fleet Management Qualifications (FMQs) are believed to be the first national vocational qualifications in the sector created in partnership with industry to equip fleet managers with the skills they need in people management, vehicle procurement and fleet maintenance.

FTA has also worked in conjunction with City and Guilds to establish a new Transport Manager CPC qualification.

Speaking at the launch at FTA’s new Tunbridge Wells training facility, FTA head of training Keith Gray said: “We are delighted to be able to offer qualifications that provide a structured career path for logistics professionals.”

And he added: “In terms of professional development, the CPC has often been the destination for Transport Managers... Now, with the introduction of FMQ, there is a development pathway along which CPC is an important milestone.”

The FTA’s new transport manager qualifications were developed with City & Guilds and have been registered with the Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).

They are now available to all training providers meeting FTA/City & Guilds approval criteria.
