Grants will reimburse mileage to and from the conference, hotel and conference registration fees only. Grantee is responsible for all expenses up front and upon providing receipts at the conclusion of the conference the grantee will be paid. You are responsible for registering for the conference and selecting your hotel accommodations.

Become a Child Passenger Technician!

You must be at least 18 years old at the time the course starts. The standardized child passenger safety technician (CPST) certification course is 4 days long and combines classroom instruction, hands-on work with car seats and vehicles, and a community safety seat checkup. Attendance is required for the entire course. This is a physically demanding class. Students will be literally climbing in and out of a variety of vehicles, outdoors during the hands-on practice exercises and while participating in the public check up event. Dress should be casual and appropriate to the weather.  There are several dates in different locations. Please see below for registration information.
