RoSPA Road Safety Engineering

TMS offers an extensive range of training courses in the field of Road Safety and Traffic Management. All courses offer a 'hands on' approach to training and are recognised for CPD by the IHE and CIHT

TMS has been running the highly successful RoSPA 10 day Road Safety Engineering training course since the early 1990's when we were appointed Technical Directors of the course. It is estimated that over 2,000 delegates have been trained over this period.

The course content is continually updated to reflect new developments in road safety engineering. Since January 2006 TMS has been responsible for administrative duties relating to these courses for RoSPA, therefore enquiries and bookings should be made directly through TMS.

In addition to the 10 day course we are now able to offer this course in a modular format, which will cover the same topics and is equialent to the same number of CPD days as the 10 day course.

The modular course consists of 6 days (three 2 day modules) of attendance of the course followed by 4 day assessed practical case study in delegates’ own time. This can help delegates to manage costs and time away from their office. 

These courses together with the 2 day Advanced Road Safety Engineering Course will continue to be promoted as a RoSPA course and will be technically assessed and quality controlled by RoSPA.

Road Safety Engineering (10 Day Course)

This is a 10 day course (Monday - Friday over two consecutive weeks) comprising of a wide range of lectures and workshops in the first week and practical work in the second week.

This course is suitable for those who require a solid, comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice of road collision investigation and prevention. The course is designed for Engineers and Technicians working in Local Authorities, Consultancies, the Department of Transport and Executive Agencies. It is also suitable for Road Safety Officers, Police and Armed Forces Officers and other professionals concerned with road safety.

This course satisfies the Highways Agency training requirement 10 days formal training for Road Safety Auditors, currently set out in HD19/15.

Please note this is now a NON-RESIDENTIAL course.

Road Safety Engineering (Modular Course)

To assist those who are unable to attend the full 10 day training course, we are now able to offer this course in a Modular format, on a non-residential basis. This option involves the course being split into 3 modules, each module being 2 days, and all 3 modules being completed within one month.

The course content is identical to that of the full 10 day course, delegates will be required to attend each of the 2 day modules of training and then complete a written report based on the case study given to the delegates during the third module, which evaluates to 4 days CPD, thus giving a total of 10 days CPD for each delegate successfully completing the course.

This course satisfies the Highways Agency training requirement 10 days formal training for Road Safety Auditors, currently set out in HD19/15.

Please note this is a NON-RESIDENTIAL course.

Road Safety Engineering - Keeping up to date

A new 2-day course designed to provide up to date information on a range of subjects which should be of interest to anyone currently involved in delivering road safety interventions or related initiatives. In particular, the first day of the course will include information on the latest collision statistics for Great Britain, how we compare to Europe and will explore the concepts of Safe Systems and Vision Zero. The second day will introduce the background to setting local speed limits and consider a variety of measures, techniques and initiatives which can be employed to manage lower speeds more effectively.

The course consists of informal short lectures with opportunities for delegates to participate through workshops and discussions. It will provide a refresher to anyone who has previously attended the 10 day RoSPA/TMS Road Safety Engineering course - more than three years ago - but attendance on that course is not a requirement of attending this new keeping up-to date course.

The course is ideal for qualified Road Safety Auditors who wish to gain their annual 2 days' CPD required throughout the UK in order to continue to undertake audits on trunk roads and motorways.

Please note this is a NON-RESIDENTIAL course.

Advanced Road Safety Engineering

This is a new two day non-residential course which replaces the previous five day RoSPA Advanced Road Safety Engineering Course. Two days' training fits with Highways England national requirement for Road Safety Auditors to undertake 2 days' CPD each year. 

The course is ideal for qualified Road Safety Auditors who wish to gain their annual 2 days' CPD required throughout the UK in order to continue to undertake audits on trunk roads and motorways.

The course is also suitable for any road safety professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of road safety engineering issues.

Ideally candidates will either have attended the 10 day RoSPA Road Safety Engineering Course or the Modular Road Safety Engineering course or will have worked in this field for at least two years.

Please note this is a NON-RESIDENTIAL course.
