Re: fleet part 2

Big question!
In a nutshell, avoid calling faults "faults". In "fleet" always consider the sessions as a Driver Development opportunity and get the driver to reflect on the risks he/she is taking.  Then get him to feel the benefit of mitigating those risks by doing "it" your way.
I.e. sell the benefits by getting him/her to buy into them very early on.

Re: fleet part 2

Indeed, 6 years after fleet qualification my fleet work dipped massively (companies in my area just not spending on training).
Now, one year on, I'm far more confident about my workload in the coming year. But it took a lot of gritted teeth in the face of dead-ends and a generous dollop of luck to get where I am.
I'd be interested to know how many fleet ADI's (as a percentage) earn most of their income through fleet and, of those, how many have increased their daily rate by getting into fleet I.e. at a very basic level, was the investment in the qualification worth it?

Re: fleet part 2

The fleet market will soon be flooded with trainers due to a certain driving school delivering free fleet courses, it will end up like the L market oversubscribed.

Re: fleet part 2

"flooded market" suggests that a good few of them will be able to get involved in fleet work.
In my experience, a great number of fleet badge holders do little or no fleet work and eventually give up trying.
The national training companies are able to pick and choose the trainers they use - a fleet badge on its own may not be enough to keep your cv out of the "filed for reference" drawer; a broader skill set, however, gets you noticed (presentation skills, PTLLS, non-standard licence entitlements etc.)

It is for some, but not for all. Some are offered more work than they want, I think it depends on where you are and what you can do.

Re: fleet part 2

I have found that, depending on where you work, providing you have some 'different' experience and or qualification such as HGV /PCV which makes you stand out from the others, there is more than enough work in the Fleet sector.

Re: fleet part 2

pinball I take it you are getting RoSPA qualification for 'credibility' purposes, am I right? If so what are you taking the RoDAR test or Diploma?
