A new road safety audit programme has been designed and developed in collaboration between IT Sligo, TII and other subject matter experts. This Post Grad Certificate in Road Safety Audit and Engineering validated at IT Sligo had its first intake of learners recently.
This programme facilitates Civil Engineering professionals within the road engineering sector to develop appropriate professional road safety auditing and road safety engineering skills and learning. It is delivered part-time, utilising a blended approach of on-line lectures and workshops over one semester.
Road Safety Audits on National Roads is a requirement of TII and Local Authority obligations under the EU Road Infrastructure Safety Management Directive (2008/96/EC). This course will help build capacity among Road Safety professionals and the online nature of the course will facilitate many more to avail of the training.
This new initiative builds upon IT Sligo’s successful partnerships with the Local Authority Services National Training Group, Irish Water and the Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland for bespoke online part time programme development.
Due to demand, IT Sligo is accepting applications for a January 2021 intake on this programme. Further information is available here.
