Technician Training and Resources
What Techs Do
CPS technicians and instructors use their considerable knowledge and expertise at a variety of community-based activities, such as child safety seat checks, where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance. CPS technicians also provide educational programs in the community to parent and caregiver groups. CPS technicians and instructors also keep up-to-date on the latest technical information about child passenger safety through seminars and other continuing education opportunities.
All CPS technicians must take and pass the CPS Certification Course and pay a course fee of $85. To learn more about becoming a tech visit www.cpsboard.org or cert.safekids.org.
