Safe Kids Updates Recertification Requirements


Excerpt from March 2016 CPS Express

Community Education 

Technicians now have three options to meet their community education requirement. 

Option 1: Participated in at least one two-hour checkup event with at least one other CPS technician at which you serve families using any standardized checklist to provide documentation, if needed.

Option 2: Provided at least four hours of community education. Examples include presenting to parents, educators, kids or organizations (PTAs, law enforcement). These presentations are not for CPSTs.

Option 3: Attended a one hour (minimum) educational session on how to better reach community members, improve communication skills or instructor development.  

Continuing Education Credits (CEUs)

In 2007 there were far fewer quality online options for new CPS Technical information. With webinars now commonplace, both live and online, technicians may now earn all six CEUs under Category 5: Online/Web Sessions.

Safe Kids and the National Child Passenger Safety Board appreciate your ongoing dedication to keeping families safe and for staying current in the field.
