Sharing knowledge is the key
With the continued growth in road safety, and the UN’s recent adoption of SDG targets and indicators based on iRAP’s Star Ratings, it is critical that iRAP’s training programme and accreditation scheme is equipped to support the delivery of high-quality projects worldwide.
Training and accreditation is an integral part of building capacity and empowering professionals worldwide in the industry, and contributes to saving lives on our roads. We have recently updated how we deliver our training courses and process the supplier accreditation.
In the first phase of the new accreditation scheme, we are offering two types of accreditation:
- For activities (in road survey, road attribute coding, and analysis of reporting);
- For inspection systems.
The activity accreditation is awarded only to individuals who go through the full training process:
- attend training
- complete assignments
- adhere to our Code of Conduct
- undertake an annual renewal.
For training, we have six different topics available and are currently developing new training programmes for Star Rating for Schools and Star Rating for Design, including the related accreditation process.
To ensure iRAP continues to make significant improvements on our training delivery and develop a sustainable programme, iRAP (as a charity) will charge the appropriate accreditation and training fees for attendees.
