Child Passenger Safety Technician Courses
75% of car seats are installed incorrectly, so to help parents and caregivers ensure children are as safe as possible in vehicles, KTSRO hosts Child Passenger Safety Courses throughout the year, in various locations around Kansas.
The course is 3-4 days and, upon its completion, will certify successful participants as a National Child Passenger Safety Technician through Safe Kids Worldwide for 2 years. KTSRO also provides yearly opportunities for recertification.
Course fee is $95. For more information on becoming a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, visit cert.safekids.org
August 18-20, 2020
September 8-10, 2020
The in-person training on April 20, 2020 has been canceled. Stay tuned for any web-based CEU's that may become available as an alternative for those who need the recertification hours. Another option to consider is the CPS Midwest Regional Conference in August. Find more information here.
