From the Director of Qatar TTSC

The Center encourages and promotes continued development in road safety management, as part of the center strategy to develop comprehensive road safety education and training programs in Qatar and the region.
Together with the IRF team, the Center is working in developing the body of knowledge and the set of skills and competencies that are required by road safety professionals in Qatar. This specific program that we have designed with the IRF is truly unique in the region. At a time when Qatar, and many countries in the region, have reaffirmed their attachment to reducing road traffic injuries, I encourage professionals from the region to take advantage of this opportunity to further enhance their safety management skills through exposure to cost-effective practices.
