Time and resource limitations often mean classroom training is not practical, above all when it requires a move to another country. That is why a course for Road Safety Experts is needed as part of a continuous training plan, which includes content covering a variety of subjects, and leads to a diploma certifying a UNITAR programme.
These courses are given online through e-learning, and will cover the most relevant road safety issues using a multimedia format, with tests of knowledge learned and support from the teachers. This is done through an online training platform offering the courses of the CIFAL Madrid centre.
Some of the questions addressed include: prevention of occupational traffic risks; management of Road Safety for Children; research into road safety as a dissemination strategy; the instruction of trainers in road safety; and the role of the media in the prevention of traffic accidents.
The courses and capacity building events offered by the CIFAL Madrid centre will be published periodically on the calendar of activities and events, together with the forms of accessing the courses available in other CIFAL centres around the world.
