Knowledge and understanding of basic child passenger safety - proper use and installation of child car and booster seats - is the most effective tool for preventing the injury or death of a child in a car crash.
The BCAA Road Safety Foundation/ICBC Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Program offers the Child Passenger Safety Basic course online at childseatinfo.ca.
The Child Passenger Safety Basic online course is the first online child passenger safety course to be offered in B.C., and aligns with the CPS program mandate to increase education about proper child car and booster seat use, and B.C.'s laws and regulations.
This online course is a valuable tool for people who transport children as part of their work, such as social workers, daycare workers, settlement workers, and healthcare workers, who want a solid understanding of child passenger safety basics, but do not wish to become a certified CPS educator. The course is also beneficial for parents, grandparents and other caregivers who transport children.
