TMS is about to deliver the 6th Irish Certificate of Competency course for Road Safety Auditors and Inspectors. This course, like the five previous courses, will be held at UCD in Clonskeagh, Dublin.
By the end of June 2013 over 170 Engineers will have undertaken the Irish Cert Comp qualification, which involves 10 days attendance on the course, sitting a written exam, and producing two written assignments (one on Collision Investigation, the second on Road Safety Audit).
The first course was delivered in 2010, and the training is continually updated to reflect current Irish best practice. The Irish Government, through the NRA, has responded very positively to the EU Road Safety Directive, and produced a series of four new DMRB Standards for each of the Directives' road safety infrastructure initiatives. The course reflects the changing nature of road safety engineering in Ireland, with increasing emphasis being placed on Road Safety Inspections as well as Safety Audit.

Steve Proctor, Director of TMS and Course Director for the Irish Certificate of Competency said:
"TMS is very proud to have been associated with this flagship training. Together with our colleagues in the NRA and at UCD, we believe this course provides excellent training for Road Safety Engineers, and a Cert Comp qualification on a par with anything else currently on offer in Europe".
