  1. 1. 13-1 National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training Program MODULE 13 Closing & Checkup Event
  2. 2. 13-2 Module 13 Objectives • Identify requirements for CPST recertification. • Prepare for a checkup event. • Conduct a checkup event. • Close and debrief a checkup event.
  3. 3. Recertification Process • Certification cycle is 2 years • Recertification includes: – Verified seat check activities (must be observed) – A community event – Continuing education – If an Instructor, teaching hours • May be done up to 4 months prior to end date 13-3
  4. 4. Checkup Event Requirements • Everyone must fully participate throughout the event. • It serves as a final assessment. • Instructors will observe and assess Technician Candidate performance throughout the event. 13-4
  5. 5. How Checkup Events Operate • CPS Technician teams work with and teach caregivers the basics of correct selection, direction, location, installation, and harnessing of car seats, booster seats, and seat belts. • Checkup events provide opportunities to detect unsafe car seats and booster seats (such as recalled, damaged, missing parts/labels). • Many details for setting up and operating an inspection station are similar to those for a parking lot event. 13-5
  6. 6. Key Considerations  Do NOT wait until the last minute to plan event!  Determine target audience.  Estimate # of families expected to attend.  Estimate # of needed CPS Technicians and volunteers.  Determine amount of time to allocate per car seat or booster seat.  Determine who the Checkup Event Coordinator will be.  Determine a safe location and conduct a pre-site visit.  Gather necessary equipment, supplies, and materials. 13-6
  7. 7. What to Expect • Always use a Check Form. Be sure the caregiver signs the form before you begin your check. • Fully involve the caregiver in the check. • Team up with a partner and work together. • Remember to use the Learn, Practice, Explain teaching method. • Read instructions and labels. • Document, document, document – everything you do, advice you give, and caregiver choices. 13-7
  8. 8. What to Expect (continued) • Follow any set policies or guidelines. • Promote 1-way traffic flow. • Turn off all vehicle motors. • Watch small children – caregivers may be distracted. • Walk around every vehicle before starting the engine. • Control ALL vehicles moving into and from event. – Announce “vehicle moving” upon entrance and exit areas. – Guide vehicles to the inspection location and exit. 13-8
  9. 9. How You Will Be Evaluated • Establishing a safe environment • Acting as a team member • Effectively communicating with caregivers and children • Involving the caregiver in the checkup and participation to correct errors • Remembering your job is to educate, NOT to install 13-9
  10. 10. How You Will Be Evaluated (continued) • Following and accurately completing Check Form • Using available resources • Asking appropriate questions of Instructors • Assuring Instructor signs off before vehicle leaves • Participating in event breakdown activities • Sharing experiences during debrief 13-10
