Regional courses

DRSC aims also at supporting educational and research programmes in LMICs, often at universities.
We may provide a range of supporting activities:

    • provide educational material to improve current road safety courses
    • give assistance to universities to develop a new road safety master course. This may involve courses given by guest- lecturers or developing e-lessons.
    • give assistance to develop post-graduate courses
    • give assistance to develop a research programme related to a course
    • organize a tailor-made version of the Delft Course in your country, in your region, at your office/institute/university, with a mix of local and international lecturers.

Where appropriate, activities will be organized in association with FIA Foundation.

For practical reasons we try to build on the contacts with alumni of the Road safety course in Delft. As of 2012 we received over 120 participants from all over the world.

Assistance that is provided ‘on distance’ (electronically from the Netherlands) can mostly be given free of charge. Local assistance (in your country) will have to be paid for (guest lecturers, course coordination).

Set up of Regional courses

Regional Courses find their origin in the Delft Road Safety Course for low- and middle-income countries organised successfully since 2012.

This is an intensive one-week course that requires active participation from all participants. The course is intended for participants with a (professional) position in road safety, who can work at a postgraduate level.

The Delft Course includes a train-the-trainer philosophy. A course in Delft covers a full range of road safety issues, is ‘evidence-based and data-driven’ and uses the Safe System approach as a guide. We kindly invite you to indicate your interest through a mail to the Secretary of the Board at board@delftroadsafetycourses.org.

Course organisation

Regional Courses are a joint effort of Delft Road Safety Courses and local organisers. DRSC is responsible for designing a course, selecting the lecturers and guiding their input. Local organisers will discuss draft course programmes with DRSC and bring in local and specific wishes on the design of a course.

A local organiser will help in identifying local lecturers. A local organiser is responsible for all practical matters of a course.

DRSC prefer to cooperate with local organisers that attended one of the courses in Delft.
