Online Training: Road Safety Audits: From Concept to Results
June 15-30, 2020 | 16 Professional Development Hours

Road safety audit and inspections serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they also assist network highway operators and city traffic departments in identifying engineering weaknesses and hazardous locations, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data. Almost 85% of countries surveyed by the World Health Organization currently report implementing road safety audits or inspections, and it is important for all road safety professionals to understand how to design and implement them correctly for maximum safety benefits.

The lectures will be taught over a three-week period with live 2-hour on-line sessions held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Upon completion of the training program, the IRF will administer an on-line knowledge test.

Online Training: Fundamentals of Road User Charging
June 25-30, 2020 | 8 Professional Development Hours

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.

Online Training: Fundamentals of Intelligent Transportation Systems & Adaptive Traffic Management
July 6-16, 2020 | 16 Professional Development Hours

Transportation agencies are in increasing need of additional tools to expand capacity utilization of the highways, roadways and public transport under their management. ITS offers the promise of this increased capacity with compelling benefit/cost ratios, and demonstrated contributions to sustainable development objectives.

In order to fully achieve these benefits and leverage ITS investments, and prepare for the rapid shifts in the vehicle fleet, it is critical for managers and planners to have a firm grasp of standards, systems architecture, lifecycle management (“designing for maintenance”), as well as best practices in the field of fully adaptive traffic management & control systems (“cooperative ITS”).

The lectures will be taught over a two-week period with live 2-hour on-line sessions held Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 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.
