About Child Passenger Safety Certification

Have you heard about events where folks get one-on-one personalized instruction on how to properly use their child’s car seat? Join the team of 38,000 nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) and be that community advocate or resource in your community! As a CPS technician, you will put your knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including community presentations and/or child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and seat belts. A majority of parents still misuse their child restraints and need help to get it right.

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 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. Learn more about the course and read the Frequently Asked Questions about becoming a tech.
