  Child Passenger Safety Technician Certification Training - Day 3 of 4
Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade *New Address
8:30 AM

Child Passenger Safety Technician is a National Certification Accredited by Safe Kids Worldwide. In order to become a nationally certified child passenger safety (CPS) technician, you must be 18 or older and pass the CPS Certification Course. Students pass the course if they attend every part of the course and earn passing grades for three sets of tests:  written quizzes; hands-on skills assessments; and a checkup event.

Before requesting to participate in this course, please be confident that you can meet all the course requirements:

  • Attend every part of the course. The CPS Certification Course is usually three to four days long and combines classroom instruction, indoor and outdoor hands-on activities, skills assessments with car seats and vehicles, and a community safety seat checkup event. You will receive a copy of the technician guide and will be expected to read it as part of the course instruction. All course materials, including the workbook, are included in your registration fee. You can get a head start on the course by checking out the technician guide.
    If you have special needs or requests, we want to work with you. Talk with the course Lead Instructor about what we can do to help make sure your CPS certification experience is a good one.
  • Written quizzes. Your instructor will test you with three written, open-book quizzes. “Open-book” means that you are encouraged to use your CPS technician guide while you are taking the quiz. To pass the combined quizzes, you must answer at least 42 out 50 questions correctly, which means a passing score of 84 percent or better.
  • Hands-on skills assessments. Instructors will test your skills with three hands-on skills assessments, and will award a grade of either pass or fail following each assessment. If you fail any of the three assessments, you will be notified during the course and may continue attending the class as an observer, but only at the discretion of the lead instructor.
  • Checkup event. The checkup event is also graded as either pass or fail. To pass the checkup event, you must successfully demonstrate:
    1.skills learned during class;
    2.the ability to follow event procedures and instructions;
    3.proper use and installation of child restraints and safety belts; and
    4.the ability to teach parents and caregivers how to properly protect their family on the road.

Successful completion of this course certifies you as a CPS technician for two years. CPSTs are required to successfully complete the recertification process before current certification expires.  To recertify, CPSTs must complete a minimum number of seat checks & community events, as well as participate in at least six continuing education units (CEUs). 

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
