Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) Certification Training

Keep kids safe in car seats, boosters and seat belts.
We plan to offer our next course in the summer of 2024, in North Vancouver, BC.

About this course

100% attendance is mandatory for both the classroom and clinic portion. Most students find they need a certain degree of physical dexterity to do this work, though skilled technicians are able to coach parents without ever touching a seat.

This course is perfect for:

  • emergency services personnel
  • nurses, midwives, and doulas
  • family support workers
  • baby and child retailers
  • child care providers
  • community volunteers
  • parents
