National Tranining, Marin County, 2004We offer trainings that will fit the needs of your community including a one hour presentation, half day, full day and two day workshops. We can train your coordinators or the whole community, whether you are a school district, city, or advocacy group.

A full Safe Routes to School training workshop will bring together school officials, transportation professionals, law enforcement officers, advocates and parents at a one (or two) day workshop providing a clear blueprint for how to develop a successful SR2S program for your community. The workshops are interactive and focus on creating and sustaining local SR2S programs. Each workshop attendee will receive the NHTSA “Safe Routes to School” guidebook and will participate in exercises ranging from event planning and classroom education to identifying barriers to walking and bicycling and creating Safe Streets.

We have conducted trainings in Boulder, CO, Savannah, GA, Portland, Or, Tucson, AZ, Kansas, Albuquerque, NM, and throughout California.

If you need help refining an existing bicycle safety education outreach, or want one-on-one assistance implementing a complete Safe Routes program and developing your own materials, consider using our Consulting services.
