IRF Catalog of Certified Training

  • This course stakes stock of the remarkable progress achieved in developing geographic information systems (GIS) technologies that can help these same safety managers be even more effective in identifying high crash locations, and the safety improvements designed to further reduce severe traffic crashes and fatalities.

  • In recent years, technological breakthroughs have combined to offer police forces more options to capture violations, and the use and impacts of these technologies need to be fully understood to ensure they achieve intended results. Similarly, the past two decades have seen a wide-ranging wave of privatisations in formerly government-owned or -controlled activities, offering new procurement and management opportunities for Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) through the use of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

  • This course introduces a strategic approach to managing road safety for results at local, national and international level. Using real world examples, the course covers the fundamentals of road safety with a focus on outcome-driven programs and collaboration with road safety stakeholders.

  • This course is addressed at owners, designers, construction engineers, supervisors, managers and operators of road tunnels. The course covers safety management issues, risk assessment, safety functions and equipment as well as continuous training and improvement for safety personnel. This course is jointly delivered with the ITACET Foundation.

  • This course discusses the reasons pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, public transportation vehicles and non-motorized vehicles are involved in impacts that result in fatalities and serious injuries. The corrective actions that can be taken to reduce these impacts are also presented in detail.

  • Selecting the correct terminals and crash cushions can be a life or death decision, and to make the right decision a specifier needs to understand certain criteria with regard to these products, and also have a clear understanding of the site specific conditions where this system is to be used. This course reviews the state of knowledge and presents processes to determine appropriate countermeasures based on site conditions.

  • Attendees are exposed to all aspects of Roadside Safety, including longitudinal barriers, crash cushions, terminals and transitions. They will be introduced to the existing products, and they will be taught the importance of site specific data to determine the most appropriate product for a particular application. They also will be introduced to the AASHTO Roadside Design Guidelines, as well as the performance testing criteria being utilized in the United States (MASH / NCHRP 350) and in Europe (EN-1317) to allow them to make informed choices.

  • Attendees will learn how to design a safe work zone and they will learn about the newest technologies for work zone safety. How to use positive protection, truck mounted attenuators, dynamic, variable message signs and flagger training will be among the topics discussed.

  • As a global leader in road safety, IRF is well positioned to present state of the art methodologies and cutting edge technologies that have been field tested to forecast crashes and reduce traffic injury risk. Course attendees will receive the necessary theoretical background and applied practices on traffic injury risk identification and reduction to ensure their programs are the most effective globally.

  • Performing effective road safety audits and inspections at all stages of road design & operation improves safety and demonstrates to the public an agency’s dedication to crash reduction. This module provides an in-depth review of proven planning and implementation practices from building independent, multi-disciplinary teams to the steps required to conduct successful audits and inspections.

  • This course is designed to meet the educational needs of government officials in charge of surface transportation-related procurements and contracts. Topics span the entire project cycle, including planning and needs assessment, concept of operations, pre-qualification and qualification of contractors, tendering or RFP process, proper use and management of consultants and contractors, the importance of mid and long term strategic planning, procurement negotiation, best practices in project supervision, completing projects on time and on budget, the role of technical specifications and standards, as well as the critical importance of ethics.

  • This 5-day course is designed to provide delegates with an opportunity to learn contemporary theory and market practices in road construction supervision, increase their understanding of the strategic role construction plays in the project delivery lifecycle, explore practical examples and case studies, and learn a dependable project delivery methodology to use for their projects. The course will provide key methods, tools, and techniques used by best in class companies and practitioners in the construction supervision industry. The course is FIDIC focused and covers the roles and responsibilities of The Engineer, contract administration, and the dispute resolution process as prescribed by FIDIC.

  • This course is designed to meet the educational needs of senior government officials and private sector contractors in fast-growing economies who are involved in the design, development and operation of complex highway projects. Instructors are drawn from both the public and private sectors of countries well-recognized for superior highway project management. Topics include planning and needs assessment, business-government relations, management and construction under fixed and tight deadlines, contingency planning, financial considerations, and outsourcing.

  • This course is dedicated to preventing, detecting and addressing fraud & corruption on highway projects. Delegates will develop a comprehensive toolkit to apply financial integrity principles and detect issues of fraud throughout the lifecycle of highway construction projects and gain the knowledge to develop risk profiles for various types of transportation projects.

  • Many agencies have expressed the need for formalized and effective performance-based management in highway projects and public-private partnership contracts. This course presents a description of best practices and practical guidelines using detailed design-build-operate case studies with sophisticated performance management systems to determine how contractor performance is managed during operations.
