EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMINISTERING HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAMS

This paper reviews the historical background of programs for training personnel in the administration of highway safety programs. It notes that federal legislation causes graduates of safety programs to move from one area to another among highway safety, occupational safety, transportation, law enforcement, and so on. There are problems in filling these positions, especially with the current minimal funding for personnel development. An example of one state's approach to administering programs to develop personnel for highway safety programming is presented to show the administrative principles used as well as the extensive planning necessary to pursue and maintain a personnel development program to cover identified educational and training needs. /Author/
