FTA launches new transport manager qualifications

Jul 15, 2016
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has launched new qualifications for fleet managers with the aim of professionalising the industry and creating a clear career path for the role.

The Commercial Vehicle Fleet Management Qualifications (FMQs) are the first national vocational qualifications in the sector created in partnership with industry to equip current and future commercial vehicle fleet managers with essential skills 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. 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. Our aim is to create a portfolio of qualifications that give those working in the industry nationally recognised, transferrable skills.” 

The qualifications have been developed with City & Guilds and are registered with the Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). They are available to all training providers meeting FTA/City & Guilds approval criteria.
