National Center for Rural Road Safety launches latest Road Safety Champion Program training

BOZEMAN, MONTANA – 09/14/2022 – The National Center for Rural Road Safety is proud to announce the relaunch of the Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP).

The RSCP is a nationally recognized certificate program for practitioners in transportation, public health, and law enforcement. It is designed for people without deep road safety knowledge.

“Think of the RSCP as a ‘Roadway Safety 101’ course,’” said Jaime Sullivan, director of the center. “This program is the best tool we have to equip local road practitioners with the knowledge base they’ll need to save lives in rural communities.”

The program covers seven core safety topics with an additional 5-7 courses that correspond with career pathways in maintenance and construction, planning and engineering, public health, or law enforcement.

“The RSCP is made for staff who want a basic understanding of roadway safety but are not full-time safety practitioners,” said Janet Leli, training manager for the center. “The goal is to equip everyone across disciplines with a safety mindset and skills.”

Learn more about the Road Safety Champion Program at the National Center for Rural Road Safety website ruralsafetycenter.org/road-safety-champion-program.

The National Center for Rural Road Safety will present webinars on the seven core modules of the RSCP throughout October and November. The dates are below. The links to register for the webinars will be published soon.
