Launched two years ago, the scheme is intended to further raise the standards of fleet industry professionals and overcome a possible skills and knowledge shortage inside many employers. Additionally, member businesses also become more closely involved in ICFM initiatives, which include training for employees, the organisation’s annual conference and Masterclasses on key industry issues.
Sign Language, which was established in 1997 as a family-owned sign maker, said becoming involved with ICFM would align the business even more closely with contract hire and leasing companies, rental firms, end-user fleets and motor manufacturers.
Mel Goodliffe, commercial director, added: “The senior management team collectively has more than 100 years of fleet industry experience but, in conversation with our customers, we believe we can increase the value of our knowledge and experience by partnering with ICFM. We will be looking to encourage our employees to enrol on to ICFM training courses so they can increase their fleet experience while, as a business, becoming involved in seminars and workshops.”
Goodliffe also said the firm hoped to underline the importance of vehicle branding and livery, echoed by ICFM sales director Peter Eldridge, who explained: “We will endeavour to use Sign Language’s knowledge and experience to underline to our scholars the importance of uncorrupted vehicle branding.”
