Child Passenger Safety Technician Courses
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. There is a fee of $85 to become a CPS Technician.
