New partnership will see training course delivered in Middle East

9 January 2018

Story from Road safety GB.

Working in partnership with the German Jordanian University (GJU), the Road Safety GB Academy has developed a new human factors training course for road safety professionals which will be delivered in Jordan during 2018.

The partnership with GJU has been forged by the recently formed Road Safety GB International which has been set up to provide UK road safety expertise to support and enhance road casualty reduction initiatives overseas and in particular in the developing world.

This is the first time the Road Safety GB Academy has been involved in developing a course for delivery outside the UK.

The two-day Behavioural Change – Applied Human Factors course is described as ‘essential learning’ for students undertaking civil highway engineering, urban planning training and other road safety-related related education and training courses.

The course will provide participants with a wider understanding of the relationship between the built environment and the ‘road user’, enabling them to explore, design and implement infrastructure that will take into account the limitations of the ‘human’ in the system.

The course will be held at the Road Safety Centre of Excellence, GJU, in the Jordanian capital of Amman. The dates are:

  • 29th - 30th January
  • 4th - 5th April
  • 11th - 12th July
