Providing professional development for the fleet community is a key objective of IPWEA FLEET.
We see professional development as critical, not only because it keeps fleet practitioners in the know with up-to-date fleet management and industry knowledge, but also because it means we develop as a profession and an industry.
On a personal level, professional development allows time for an individual to invest in themselves and to get away from the daily pressures of work to reflect and consider new ways of doing things.
With this in mind, we are now well underway with planning for the 2019 IPWEA Plant and Vehicle Management Workshop series. These workshops have been running for well over a decade and provide a terrific opportunity for professional development, industry updates and networking with others in the industry. Last year we added Newcastle to the list of regional centres and capital cities that host the workshops bringing the total to eight locations along with; Casino, Brisbane, Sydney, Dubbo, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
This year the workshops are going to have an increased local focus with an In My Patch session added to each location and addressing a topic of specific interest to that region. Other topics of interest will include; Plant Management Update – looking at current issues in managing plant, Light Fleet Replacement Optimisation – examining cost minimisation in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, sessions on Fleet Asset Planning and much more.
Professional development is an investment, not a cost, so why not save the date now and attend your nearest IPWEA Plant and Vehicle Management Workshop.
