Road Safety Champion Program

Posted: 9/26/2023

The National Center for Rural Road Safety (NCRRS) announced its latest version of the Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP), a nationally recognized certificate program designed to build a knowledgeable, safety minded workforce responsible for operating, maintaining, and designing local roads.

"Road Safety Champions" prioritize safety and are motivated to implement safety improvements that reduce fatalities and serious injuries on rural and local roadways.

RSCP trainees complete a series of courses in core and specialized safety issues that earn them a Road Safety Champion Program Certificate. RSCP is open to all staff from transportation, public health, and law enforcement agencies who have an interest in roadway safety but are not safety experts.

Starting September 21, NCRRS is hosting a 7-part series of onling training that covers RSCP's core modules. Each 2-hour session is free to attend and completion of all seven are required to receive an RSCP certficate. These courses may be taken out-of-turn and completed any time in the future when available.
