Funded FORS Practitioner workshops are available to book for January, February and March 2019 in locations across the UK. FORS Practitioner is a series of 10 workshops covering all aspects of fleet management.
Completion of all 10 workshops means you will join an elite group of 1,200-plus operators that have reached FORS Practitioner status.
Under Gold requirement ‘G5 Professional development’ of the FORS Standard version 5, the responsible person, or other nominated manager involved in the fleet operation, must be working towards achieving FORS Practitioner qualification at initial audit, while FORS Practitioner status must be achieved at Gold re-approval audit. This applies for any operators with audits from 14 January 2019. However, transitional provisions are in place to assist operators with meeting this new requirement. This means that those with a Gold re-approval audit between 14/01/19 and 31/12/19 can plan and evidence the training for completion by their following Gold re-approval audit in 2020. Please see Annex 6 of the FORS Standard version 5 for details.
The FORS Practitioner workshop topics are:
- Workshop 1 – Developing fleet management policy
- Workshop 2 – Managing work related road risk
- Workshop 3 – Managing driver fitness and health
- Workshop 4 – Managing driver training and development
- Workshop 5 – Collision procedures and analysis
- Workshop 6 – Safe and efficient fleet management
