General Information

• Identify and correct misuse of child restraints.
• Educate others about child passenger safety, issues and concerns.
• Demonstrate a minimum standard of knowledge and skills to meet national certification requirements.
• Serve as a resource to organization/community/state.
• Conduct child passenger safety car seat inspections.
