This enrichment course will introduce certified child passenger safety technicians (CPSTs) to medical conditions that can impact child safety restraint selection, and provide the opportunity to investigate and install specialized restraint systems. The training, which lasts two days, combines classroom lectures, discussions and hands-on exercises including the opportunity to interact with families and assess the transportation needs of their children.
