‘8 to 80’ refers to the aspiration that our transport network should be designed and operated to cater for anyone from 8 to 80 years old.
This interactive course explores the complexities of a growing and ageing population and how the road network needs to adapt to account for this changing demographic.The course explores the characteristics of older pedestrians, including users of motorised mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs; younger pedestrians; and older drivers, and relates them to road design elements.

ROAD SAFETY BARRIERS II – APPLICATIONS (TWO DAYS)
Attendees to this course are required to have completed the Road Safety Barriers I – Fundamentals course or have received an exemption from VicRoads Network Design Services.
This advanced Road Safety Barrier course further develops the attendee’s knowledge of the life of road safety barriers, from design through to installation, inspection and maintenance. The opportunity to meet industry suppliers and inspect sample barriers is also provided.
Following the successful completion of this course attendees will be recognised on the published list of Road Safety Barrier Professionals on the VicRoads website.
This course examines design standards, traffic engineering and road safety with a focus on the needs of heavy vehicles.
This course is an excellent introduction for practitioners to consider heavy vehicle needs and how to best manage them on the road network. This half day workshop explores unique heavy vehicle road design issues including swept paths, sight distances, geometric design elements, rollover prevention and other road safety issues.

This course won the 2017 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
Making Roads Motorcycle Friendly is an internationally recognised half-day course designed to raise awareness of the vulnerability of motorcyclists.
The course focuses on developing an understanding of motorcycle fatality and serious injury rates, why we need to design roads with motorcyclists in mind, the complexities in motorcycle riding, injury vulnerability of motorcyclists and where motorcyclists fit in within the Safe System. It also highlights how road design/construction and maintenance or reinstatement works can be performed in ways that improve safety for motorcyclists.
The Safe System forms the basis of Towards Zero, the Victorian Government’s Road Safety Strategy. Participants of day 1 will gain an understanding of the Safe System philosophy, managing roadside hazards, intersection energy management and Safe System Assessments.
On day 2 participants can compare their Safe System thinking with current real world applications. This training expands on the Safe System Principles course with more practical elements involving the use of the Austroads Safe System Assessment Framework. Day 2 is only suitable for those with existing knowledge of the Safe System. Participants can elect to attend one or both days of the training.

ROAD SAFETY BARRIERS I - FUNDAMENTALS (ONE DAY)
This course provides attendees with an understanding of the fundamentals of road safety barriers, including the types of road safety barriers, identification of hazards, the appropriate use of barriers and the testing standards.
This course is a pre-requisite for those wishing to attend the Road Safety Barriers II – Applications course (unless an exemption is sought from VicRoads Network Design Services).
The course meets the Austroads course requirements to become an accredited Road Safety Auditor.
This course is relevant to individuals who are required to manage the Road Safety Audit process and its outcomes.
Current accredited Road Safety Auditors that wish to undertake a refresher course may also attend.
When is it best to use a STOP or GIVE WAY sign? Where and why are yellow lines are painted on the road?
This interactive workshop covers these and more signage and pavement marking questions based on the latest Australian Standards AS 1742 series.
Consistency of signage and line marking across Australia is an important part of the road network, it provides road users the necessary information to be able to quickly recognize the actions which need to be taken on the road.
This one-day technical training provides professionals with the knowledge and skills to choose and install line marking consistent with the standards and guidelines on Australian roads.
