BVRLA launches ambitious training and development programme for members

The association has announced the appointment of Gursh Gill as its new learning and development professional, which will spearhead the implementation of an ambitious training and development programme as it helps members comply with a range of new consumer and financial regulatory regimes.

One of the first priorities will be to assist leasing brokers in achieving, maintaining and demonstrating full compliance with Financial Conduct Authority rules. Elsewhere there will be more opportunities for small and medium-sized daily rental members who lack their own dedicated training resources.

Commenting on Gill’s appointment, BVRLA head of member services Nora Leggett said: “With his extensive training and operational experience in the rental industry, we’re confident that Gursh is ideally qualified to lead our initiatives in this area.”

Leggett added: “We want to increase the range of training, accreditation and professional development we offer as part of our wider commitment to maintain and improve standards within the industry. We will be working through our partners at the ICFM, Grosvenor Training, Manheim and Professional Inspiration Ltd to increase public confidence in the industry.”

The news comes as two members of staff from Fleet Assist received their Automotive Technician Accreditation certificates at a BVRLA forum this week.

More than 400 people achieved success in BVRLA training in 2014, with the association hosting more than 60 seminars, webinars, forums and workshops.
