For many years now TMS staff have been providing support to academic programmes at British and Irish Universities.
TMS staff hold honorary research positions at both Birmingham and Loughborough Universities where they contribute to taught MSc courses in Highways and Road Safety related topics. TMS has also recently won a contract with University College Dublin, to continue to provide Road Safety Audit Certificate of Competency courses. This qualification, which has academic credentials that contribute towards MSc modules, is the Irish Government’s official route to RSA certification. All Safety Audit teams operating in the Republic after 19 December 2013 will require at least one member of the team to hold a Certificate of Competency.
Steve Proctor, TMS Director said: “We are very proud of our record in working with higher education establishments to teach both academic and vocational qualifications. Whilst road safety is a very practical subject, it is important to provide an evidence base for much of what we do, and university teaching and research makes a big contribution to knowledge in this area of work.”
