Safe Kids Trainings and Classes
- Child Passenger Safety (CPS) 32 hour Technician Training
The national standardized child passenger safety technician certification course is usually four to five days long and combines classroom instruction, hands-on work with car seats and vehicles, and a community safety seat checkup event, where students demonstrate proper use and installation of child restraints and safety belts and then teach these skills to parents. Successful completion of this course certifies the individual as a CPS technician for two years.
Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Technician Refresher Course
The CPS refresher course offers current CPS technicians a chance to update their technical skills with new seat education, equipment updates and new legislation review. CPS refresher courses are scheduled locally with your Safe Kids San Mateo/ Santa Clara County Coalition. For more information, call (650) 724-1788.
Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Technician Recertification Course
This one-day course is available for technicians and instructors whose certifications have expired as an alternative to retaking the certification course. It was designed for formerly certified individuals who have maintained their child passenger safety knowledge and their hands-on skills. It is not intended to be a shortened version of the Certification course.
