Programs: Child Passenger Safety >> Technicians

As you know, car crashes are a leading cause of death and hospitalization for children. Many parents and caregivers do not realize that they are incorrectly installing their child car seat.

Car seat technicians are community members that receive specialized training on how to select and properly install child restraints in motor vehicles. Technicians provide their services in the community at private appointments, car seat check-up events, and at health fairs. Many car seat technicians work for law enforcement agencies, nonprofit organizations, or private businesses.
