Online Training

TAC’s Online Training Centre courses are accessible to TAC members and non-members alike. They can include several types of content for both on-demand (asynchronous) and live (synchronous) learning.

Once registered for a course, learners can access the Online Training Centre with a single click from their TAC Online account. Each online training course has a limited-time access window that varies in length depending on the course material and cost.


Road Safety for Canadian Practitioners

Overview. TAC is pleased to offer the most in-depth online training program for road safety engineering in North America. It is the result of a partnership with the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE), and was developed by a team of Canadian experts in road safety, led by CIMA+, with the support of TAC member organizations. It includes five courses:

  • Module 1 – Foundations of Road Safety
  • Module 2 – Measuring Safety
  • Module 3 – Human Factors and Road Safety
  • Module 4 – Solving Safety Problems
  • Module 5 – Implementing Road Safety Programs

Course details and registration

Audience. These online training courses are intended for transportation practitioners who are actively involved in road safety, or who would like to be. They cover introductory topics for practitioners with basic experience, as well as more complex topics for practitioners with intermediate to advanced experience. As a group, they comprehensively address – and exceed – the material covered by the Road Safety Professional, Level 1 certification examination that is administered by the Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB).

Features. Following are some key features of the Road Safety for Canadian Practitioners training program:

  • Each course (module) is divided into several sections (submodules). Each submodule includes a recorded lecture, a list of recommended additional reading, and examples or case studies. A handout for each course suggests additional voluntary exercises.
  • The total duration of lectures in each module ranges from 3 to 6 hours. In total, the five modules offer 24 hours of learning.
  • A learner’s progress is tracked automatically, so they can pause anytime and return later to the same location. Learners can download an electronic certificate for each module they complete.
  • There are no graded tests or examinations. A multiple-choice quiz at the end of each submodule helps learners gauge their progress and comprehension and must be completed before proceeding. For each incorrect answer, learners are referred to the point in the lecture where the correct answer can be found.
  • Learners can access each module for six months after payment. Extended access requires re‑registration.
  • Courses will run on desktop or laptop computers (Windows 7 or later, Mac OS X 10.9 or later) and on tablets or mobile phones (Android OS 5 or later, iOS 11 or later).
