Professional Development

The Australasian Fleet Management Association provides Members with various ways they can work towards industry best practice.

Graduate Certificate of Business Management (Fleet Management)

Part of AfMA’s Charter is to promote Fleet Management as a profession. In doing so, the Association has developed a Graduate Certificate of Business Management (Fleet Management) with Swinburne University.

The Graduate Certificate is offered exclusively to AfMA Members and is the first postgraduate qualification offered in this industry sector. Consisting of 4 units, delivered online, the course is nationally recognised and on completion will provide a pathway into a Master of Business Management (MBM).

Entry is available to AfMA Members with four years relevant business experience or an approved undergraduate degree or advanced diploma.

Seminars & Conferences

AfMA offers a series of seminars across Australia as well as an annual two day National Fleet Conference & Exhibition. With a wide range of practical and relevant topics, these events promote the sharing of ideas and knowledge in an informal learning environment.

Best Practice Programs

In assisting Fleet Management professionals in adopting best practise, two program's have been developed, each of which includes a ‘How To Guide’.

The ‘Safer Motoring’ and ‘Greener Motoring’ How To Guides are available free of charge to AfMA Members and contain a set of policies and procedures which can be easily adapted to fit an organisation’s own Fleet Safety and Fleet Environment plan.

These guides fit into a wider program designed to assist Members with the adoption of best practice across all aspect of their Fleet operations.
