The Standardized Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Certification Training was developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to provide a resource to help parents and caregivers transport children safely. Safe Riders conducts the standardized training in a three- and-a-half- day course format. Upon successful completion of the course, technician candidates become nationally certified as child passenger safety technicians with a two-year certification. CPS technicians may serve as safety educators and advocates in their communities in various sectors by participating in child safety seat checkup events and providing safety presentations to parents/caregivers and community groups to ensure the safe transportation of children.
