The United Nations (UN) have adopted targets that include star ratings. iRAP assessments are an internationally-recognised approach to managing road safety risk and saving lives and road agencies in more than 90 countries have used iRAP assessments.

To help meet growing demand for Star Rating assessments, iRAP and ARRB created a special training video series. The iRAP Star Rating Essentials is a series of five videos recorded after a webinar series delivered in December 2018. The series presents the essentials of iRAP methodology on Road Survey, Attribute Coding, and ViDA Creator, the iRAP online software for analysis and reporting. Each module is between 60 and 70 minutes.

The series will be available on Schoology from 26 March 2019 with a cost of USD200 per student. It includes pre reading materials, videos for each module, assignments and certificate upon completion of all activities.

By taking this training, the students will build knowledge about infrastructure risk and develop the skills needed to perform iRAP assessments.
