IRF and Qatar University Partner for Safer Roads

The International Road Federation and the Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center (QTTSC) at Qatar University have partnered to deliver a series of Road Safety Training programs taking place between May 2016 and April 2017. These courses have been carefully selected to reflect the specific traffic safety challenges of Qatar and other fast-motorizing nations in the Middle East and North Africa. At the end of the cycle, participants will have an advanced understanding of the different diagnosis tools and engineering solutions, and how these fit within broader national strategies.

Dr. Khalifa Al-Khalifa, director of QTTSC, said  “the Center encourages and promotes continued development in road safety management, as part of its strategy to develop comprehensive road safety education and training programs in Qatar and the region. Together with the IRF team, the Center is working on developing the body of knowledge and the set of skills and competencies that are required by road safety professionals in Qatar. This specific program that we have designed with the IRF is truly unique in the region. At a time when Qatar, and many countries in the region have reaffirmed their attachment to reducing road traffic injuries, I encourage professionals from the region to take advantage of this opportunity to further enhance their safety management skills through exposure to cost-effective practices”

The courses are scheduled as follows (ordered by date offered):
