Training at LMIC Based Partners
The primary aim of IRSC is to develop local capacity in each country that can then manage and coordinate road safety issues more affectively. The IRSC's intention is to encourage the development of sustainable in-country road safety activities and thereby reduce deaths and injuries.
1. Training of key officials to manage and implement national road safety programmes;
2. Training of local instructors to deliver IRSC courses in-country in local languages;
3. Training / mentoring of academics to undertake effective road safety research and teaching that creates a knowledge framework for better policy making. A bi-product of this exercise is the development of a cadre of future safety specialists that the country will need if success is to be achieved and maintained.
The regular programme of IRSC courses are offered in Belgrade where we train senior officials, potential instructors and academics as needed. However, it is our intention to work with client LMIC governments to make relevant IRSC courses available at nominated partner organisations.
In general, such “portable” courses will be aimed at training local trainers in specific topics together with the use of related training materials (text books, slide packs and instructor guides) and assisting them to develop local language versions of IRSC courses. There may also be the opportunity for follow up visits to assist local instructors present the first few courses until they feel confident and capable in delivering the courses independently.
