CEU Highlight: Child Passenger Safety and Children with Autism

November 9, 2016

Featured CPST CEU Webinar:

Child Passenger Safety and Children with Autism

The National Child Passenger Safety Board website, cpsboard.org, hosts free, online CEUs to support CPST recertification and to serve as a resource for parents and caregivers.

This week we are highlighting the webinar: Child Passenger Safety and Children with Autism.

During this webinar, you will learn about autism spectrum disorder, report findings of a study conducted at Riley Hospital, the role of the CPST at a seat check, challenges affecting transporting children with autism, specialized restraints and additional resources.

Information and quiz to complete a CPST CEU in conjunction with this webinar can be found at http://cpsboard.org/certification-recertification/. This webinar is currently #1 under the heading of “General” CEUs. Be sure to complete the corresponding quiz, and maintain the certificate of completion for your records.

Our thanks to the National CPS Certification Program and the Automotive Safety Program for offering this webinar. Original webinar date was October 15, 2013, with an update in April 2015 following release of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Injury Prevention that showed 1 in 68 children are identified with autism spectrum disorder. More at http://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2014/p0327-autism-spectrum-disorder.html.

To earn online continuing education units (CEUs):

Technicians must carefully review session materials and pass the corresponding quiz by answering eight out of ten questions correctly. Technicians may earn one CEU for each quiz passed per certification cycle. All six required CEUs can be earned through online/web session CEUs 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 save or 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. You can also right click on the certificate and select “Save Image”.

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.”
