The Academy has recently been accepted as an Approved Training Provider to the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT).

As a result, a new one-day Behavioural Change Course aimed at the highways engineering profession has been developed, which will satisfy the CPD needs of highway engineers.

Background to course

This course is essential CPD learning for civil highway engineers, urban planners and other related disciplines around the development of infrastructure that will impact on the safety of road users. It will provide them 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 explore:

  • A wide range of behavioural change models and theories that will develop a participant's understanding of the complexity of human behaviour.
  • How to apply models and theories to the development of road safety interventions.
  • How people make decisions and how these can be influenced by the physical and social environment.

Who should attend this course?

This course is essential learning for highways engineers and students undertaking civil highway engineering, urban planning training and other related education and training courses that will involve the improvement of road safety.

"The course was the best one I’d been on in a long time and it is such a breath of fresh air to see this approach/education being offered to engineers, rather than the usual recycled engineering courses we require for CPD.   You delivered the course excellently and I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and content. I have already recommended the course to all of our Traffic Engineers and Design Group Engineers."
David Boardman MIHE, Senior Engineer- Road Safety, Bath & North East Somerset Council

*About Zoom
Zoom is a leading on-line training platform which offers a wide range of interactive tools to enhance the learning experience.  One key advantage is that Zoom easily facilitates group based discussion, increasing the interaction between participants.  For this reason Road Safety GB prefers to use Zoom when possible.  While some organisations do not allow their employees to have the full version of the Zoom software installed on their computers, this does not always mean that a participant cannot access an online event via their browser,   We therefore recommend that anyone who is concerned about their ability to access an event on Zoom speaks directly to their IT provider to identify if they allow browser access.
