Parking drives the place experience - let’s drive somewhere nice.
This one-day workshop looks beyond lines and signs to consider the way in which parking planning can enhance place amenity, local access and walk safety. The failure to understand and manage impacts risks the delivery of parking into places that are no longer worth visiting, shopping or stopping in. The impacts occur well beyond the car park. They include congestion, cruising, vehicle conflicts with cyclists and pedestrians and associated amenity.
Attendees will come away from this workshop with practical ideas for better, smarter, integrated urban parking and complementary place access solutions. We invite you to bring your own parking issues and ideas for group discussion.
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.

ROAD DESIGN FOR HEAVY VEHICLES TRAINING
ROAD SAFETY AUDIT 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).
*NEW* TRAFFIC SIGNALS TRAINING
MAKING ROADS MOTORCYCLE FRIENDLY TRAINING
This two-day workshop presents the latest practice in the safe and efficient design of traffic signal installations.
The workshop presents detailed information and instruction on using the Austroads Guides. Participants will gain an understanding of the traffic engineering principles involved in designing traffic signals. Safety, efficiency and the behaviour of drivers and pedestrians will be emphasised. Extensive use of exercises and case studies ensures that trainees gain experience in preparing display sequences and determining alternate phasing arrangements.
Participants will be actively involved in the learning via group exercises on signal timing, coordination, controller settings and equipment location. Content in the workshop is drawn from Austroads Guide to Traffic Management, Parts 6, 9 and 10.
TOUR DE MELBOURNE - THE RACE TO IMPROVE CYCLIST SAFETY
This novel auditor training will provide participants the opportunity to experience first-hand how infrastructure impacts cyclists.
Attendees will be provided a bicycle or e-bike (or they may bring their own) and will be guided on a cycling tour that highlights a variety of cycling treatments both on and off-road. This hands-on approach will give attendees insight into how this vulnerable road user experiences the metropolitan network and the hazards they face. Moreover, being actively involved in the training course will sharpen attendee’s skills in identifying hazards and providing solutions for cycling infrastructure.
Stops will be made along the journey for the group to pause and reflect on the ride. Experienced facilitators will provide insight and communicate what is ‘best practice’ for delivering cycling infrastructure. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences of the ride whilst developing their understanding of what treatments are available.

*NEW* PARKING TRAINING
ROAD SAFETY BARRIERS TRAINING
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 recognise 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.
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.

‘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.
