Child Passenger Safety Certification Training

Child Passenger Safety Certification Training

Certified child passenger safety technicians provide parents and caregivers one-on-one instruction on how to properly use and install a car seat.  This can make a difference during a crash and can save lives. The extensive certification course, held over three days, is quick paced and interactive.  It is taught through a combination of hands-on activities, lectures and discussion that utilize a wide variety of child restraint and vehicle belt systems.  There is a high level of professionalism associated with certification and acknowledgement of expertise.  There is specialized problem solving and emphasis on community education during the course that lends to serving the community.  Consider joining the team of more than 43,000 nationally certified CPS technicians and be a leader and resource in your hospital and community.

The Illinois ENA and Rush Copley Medical Center/Illinois Department of Transportation are co-sponsoring the following Child Passenger Safety Certification Training courses.  This is a three-day classroom training with lecture instructions as well as hands-on activities, skills assessments with car seats and vehicles, and a community safety seat check event at the conclusion of the course.  All course materials including the workbook are included in the registration fee. After successful completion of the  course, participants will receive national certification in Child Passenger Safety.
All ENA members interested in a attending the class, please contact Thelma Kuska, BSN, RN, CEN,CPST-I, FAEN at
