UKQ UK International Diploma in Road Safety Level (II) Course
This UKQ UK Approved International Certificate in Road Safety Level (II) course is designed to prepare and strengthen leaders who will be required to improve road safety performance over the coming decades and create a safe driving environment for all persons who use or live near road networks. This will concentrate on strategic goals and operational excellence, with numerous instances of techniques used in various countries and locations.
Why this course?
The course aims to minimise road trauma among young people by equipping them with the knowledge to make informed decisions as drivers, pedestrians, passengers and cyclists, and to develop positive attitudes that are demonstrated in safe road user behaviour.
This course is intended to enhance a person’s life skills by providing a system of behavioural and attitudinal appraisal and self-reflection tools. In addition, it provides a platform for constructing risk assessment skills useful in the workplace and other settings.
Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at providing a holistic approach to road safety education by developing positive attitudes and behaviours toward road use through promoting an understanding of the common risk factors people encounter when using our road system. Attitudinal and behavioural change are the strategic focus for road safety education, as distinct from practical car driver training, which is covered in the Tasmanian licensing system. There are no prerequisites for this course. It is envisaged that this course will be appropriate for learners with special needs.
Topics covered in this Course are as follows,
- The consequences of risky behaviour
- How to make informed decisions about their own and others welfare
- Becoming aware of their personal values towards road safety
- How their values affect their behaviours and moral choices
- Threats to their personal safety
- How to take steps to protect themselves and value personal health and safety
- Their rights and responsibilities as a road user.
On successful completion of this course, learners will be able to identify:
- The different road user groups, their roles and responsibilities, and attitudes that shape behaviour and interactions between road users
- Common causes of crashes and be able to speculate on factors that contribute to crashes by providing explanations as to how a crash is the result of road user, road environment and vehicle factors
- Some high-risk behaviours and how this affect driving performance and contribute to road crashes
- Short term and long-term consequences that result from some high-risk behaviours, and have simple strategies to reduce high risk behaviours in relation to self and others
- How primary and secondary vehicle and environmental design safety features reduce crashes, and identify benefits of vehicle safety features
