Overview

Many people have built successful careers in the automotive and fleet industries without formal qualifications through delivering real outcomes that make a difference to their organisation.

To achieve this AfMA partnered with Swinburne University to deliver two university level qualifications which provide your pathway to senior management within the industry.

Underpinning these formal qualifications are AfMA’s Professional Development Forums (PDF’s), their Fleet Excellence Awards and annual Australasian Fleet Conference & Exhibition.

Fleet management has become a multi-faceted and globally recognised discipline requiring a more strategic approach to the management of an important corporate resource. With a portfolio in the millions of dollars and responsibility for a variety of management functions, it is increasingly important to understand and drive the factors that influence decisions so fleet managers can meet the organisation’s business objectives. Fleet professionals can significantly influence the organisation’s business model, business plans and sustainability strategies.

The aims and objectives of this Grad Cert is to introduce a conceptual framework that embraces sustainable business practices integrating commercial, environmental and people dimensions of organisational goals and practices. This approach provides a basis for developing critical thinking skills associated with the role of the fleet manager in the current complex and shifting business environment.

Consisting of four units, delivered online, the course is nationally recognised and on completion will provide a pathway into a Master of Business Management (MBM).

Underpinning these formal qualifications are AfMA’s Professional Development Forums (PDF’s), their Fleet Excellence Awards and annual Australasian Fleet Conference & Exhibition.

Annual Awards

Learning from others is fundamental to growing your career opportunities.

Since their introduction in 1996 the awards have recognised new approaches and applications that have produced substantial reductions in costs, lowered emissions and improved safety outcomes. Drawing attention to advances in fleet management techniques, the application of technology, fleet safety and raising awareness of the fleets’ impact on the environment, the Awards have inspired many to begin their own voyage towards best practice.
