Safe Kids Worldwide is the certifying body for the National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training Program. To register for a course, you must first create an online CPS profile through Safe Kids.
Visit the CPS Certification website for more information on how to become a technician and registering for a certification course.
The certification cycle for both technicians and instructors is two years, and all requirements of the recertification process must be met:
To earn online continuing education units (CEUs) from the CPS Board, technicians must carefully review session materials and pass an online quiz by answering four out of five questions correctly. Technicians may earn one CEU for each quiz passed per certification cycle. No more than five online/web session CEUs are allowed per certification cycle.
Enter your name and certification number as they appear in your online profile and print out the certificate of completion after passing each quiz for your personal records. There is no online record of technicians who have passed each quiz, so if you do not print out the certificate or if it becomes damaged or lost, you must retake the quiz.
To save a copy of your certificate, click “Print this certificate” and choose “Save as PDF” as the printing destination.
After earning your CEU, log in to your CPS Online Profile, click on Recertification Activities and follow prompts to enter the CEU under “Category 4: Online/Web Sessions.”
Manufacturer Update (Car Seats)
Technicians may earn up to one CEU credit per certification cycle for reading two issues of the Tech Update and completing both quizzes.
Unless otherwise directed to do so by the Safe Kids Certification Program, technicians should not mail these quizzes or any other CEU materials or documentation to Safe Kids. Technicians should keep these documents in their files. If CEU-audited, technicians must submit two quizzes with at least four out of five answers correct on each quiz to earn the CEU.
