Overview

Road pricing systems and technologies have made tremendous progress over the past decade, and today developing and implementing a local or nationwide solution presents fewer risks than was the case 10-15 years ago. Nevertheless, capital and operational expenditures remain a significant hurdle for many road agencies and toll operators. It is therefore essential for decision-makers to carefully consider the benefits of road pricing systems prior to large-scale investments.

The lectures will be taught over a two-week period with live 2-hour on-line sessions held Wednesday and Friday. Upon completion of the training program, the IRF will administer an on-line knowledge test. Participants with a score of 80% of the exam will be awarded with a certificate verifying their successful completion of the course.
