Course Types

Certification Course
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 in vehicles, and a community safety seat checkup event. Successful completion of this course certifies the individual as a national CPS technician for two years.

Renewal Course
This eight-hour course was developed to help former technicians regain their CPST certification. Individuals must be in the system as having been nationally certified at some time (status = Expired). It provides a very brief overview of the technical information contained in the most recent version of the NHTSA curriculum and verifies technical skills through a series of hands-on assessments and a written test.

This course is designed for those who have stayed active in the field of CPS. Any technician who does not pass the Renewal Course is encouraged to take the full Certification course, rather than taking the Renewal course again.

Update Course
The eight-hour Certification Update Course is designed for currently certified technicians that are interested in keeping their skills updated. It provides an update of the most recent changes in the field and verifies technical skills to gain the six hours of CEUs and the five seat checks needed in order for the technician to re-certify for the two year certification period.
