Attendance is required 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.

Nursing, non-mobile infants are welcome in the classroom portion of the course.

This course is suitable for:

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

Many who take this course find rewarding volunteer opportunities in their community helping parents and caregivers. Some even earn tips!

Successful completion of the course comes with a 3-year certification with the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada and 3 years of insurance when working as a volunteer (either with other CPSAC volunteers, with another organization, or when volunteering independently). You will receive your course manual and a supply of triplicate check forms.
