Joie is excited to announce our partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) as their Global Partner in Child Road Safety.
UNITAR, through its International Training Center for Authorities and Leaders (CIFAL) based in Madrid, provides professional training in Road Safety via e-learning, seminars, practical courses and post-graduate courses.
As a UNITAR partner, Joie will present the child road safety instruction for UNITAR’s global training events and e-learning programs. These specialised workshops and trainings on Child Road Safety will take place around the world and be geared toward professionals responsible for public safety including NGOs, police, and fire services. Joie and UNITAR’s goal together is to improve the safety of children worldwide in all scenarios, whether riding in the car or as pedestrians – particularly in countries where child injury as a result of road accidents is especially common.
Additionally, CIFAL offers training to technicians and professionals through the University Degree of Expert in Road Safety Management and Administration, the UN’s first postgraduate program in Road Safety. The program was created “to offer the highest level of qualifications to experts and professionals in accident prevention.” Joie’s contribution to the curriculum provides students with education on subjects such as car seat standards, the importance of correct child restraint usage, and the manufacturing and design processes of child restraint systems.
