The establishment of a dedicated Training and Accreditation function was shaped in 2018 and is a centerpiece of the iRAP strategy to enable others, create the capacity for scale and support the essential quality assurance of partner and supplier activity around the world. The Training and Accreditation team is responsible for development and delivery of training and accreditation that grows capability in Europe for people to make use of the iRAP methodology to perform projects and implement policies that support EuroRAP’s vision of creating a Europe free of high-risk roads, as well as the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, United Nations Member States Global Road Safety Performance Targets and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Developed as a sustainable funding initiative, the Training and Accreditation activities are designed to be self-sustaining, so they can scale with scale to meet demand globally.
iRAP assessments are an internationally-recognised approach to managing road safety risk and saving lives. By taking iRAP training you and your team will build knowledge about infrastructure risk and develop the skills needed to perform iRAP assessments. iRAP offers a wide range of training modules that can be undertaken in a classroom, as online webinars or in a self-paced online environment. Students have the opportunity to complete assignments that help build a practical understanding of concepts and processes for application in Europe. By combining modules, courses can be developed to suit your needs and develop your credentials towards accreditation.
