WHO has promoted this decade as the decade of road safety globally. Major public and private entities are introducing new models of traffic management, mobility and road safety systems to reduce the risk of accidents and optimize the mobility of their resources. These efforts are succeeding in reducing road accidents and, in addition, generating economic value and reducing costs.

This IMF Master in collaboration with Camilo José Cela University provides the necessary knowledge to design road management systems that allow obtaining ISO 39001 certification and promoting sustainable mobility in all its dimensions and areas of operation.

This training is mainly aimed at safety and prevention technicians who are responsible for the definition of accident minimization programs associated with the use of vehicles and pedestrians that are the main focus of accidents. This course is also aimed at technicians from different public bodies and security forces, in order to prevent and reduce road accidents.

The objective of the Master in Road Safety is to provide the student with the tools that allow him to define mobility and road safety plans in both private and public organizations. It will give the student a global idea of ​​the business world, ISO certifications, so that organizations can demonstrate their efficiency and quality in traffic and road safety.

This is a very current issue, immersed in the decade of improving road safety at the global level, as defined by the UN.
