The grant will enable the development of an online training and accreditation programme. Up until now, training sessions have taken place on an ad hoc basis at ‘bricks and mortar’ locations.
Road to Zero is a coalition launched by the National Safety Council in partnership with the US Department of Transportation. It has over 250 members who are working together to achieve a vision of zero road deaths and serious injuries in coming years.
The NSC is committed to providing funds for each of the next three years to support promising road safety innovations which will support the USA’s efforts to achieve zero road fatalities and serious injuries.
The RSF’s Director of Safety and Research Programs, Bruce Hamilton, said: ‘This is an exciting time for usRAP. We will be working closely with iRAP through the process of developing the online training system and will explore opportunities for expanding the training to provide global accreditation possibilities.’
