What is the Ohio Safe Routes Academy?
The Ohio Safe Routes Academy provides training, workshops and implementation programs to communities throughout Ohio. We offer active transportation training on programs, projects and policy that can help your community reach its active transportation goals.
There is no charge for these adult training programs. They provide practical knowledge to implement a variety of safety, education, encouragement, engineering and enforcement opportunities. Workshops are requested through an application process, and awarded based on instructor availability.
Who can apply?
The application is open to any local jurisdiction (ex. local school, school district, government, health department). If a non-profit would like to apply we request they partner with the local jurisdiction.
Who should attend?
Most workshops would benefit school district administration, teachers, staff, health professionals, parents, advocates, transportation professionals and volunteers.
Professional Development Credit: All workshops will provide attendees with public domain continuing education units (CEUs). CEUs from AICP/CM and Educator CEUs are being explored as well for the sessions and may be available for award in the future.
Train the Trainer Programs: These programs educate individuals to teach the topic to other adults, or to conduct a program in their community as the expert instructor. Attendees will be given instruction on how to lead community implementation of these programs, and/or conduct these programs in their community.
