Safe Travel for All Children: Transporting Children with Special Health Care Needs

“Safe Travel for All Children” is designed to serve as an enrichment course for child passenger safety technicians who are interested in learning more about special needs transportation.  The training, which lasts approximately a day and a half, combines classroom lectures and discussions with hands-on exercises.  During the training, participants will be introduced to medical conditions that can impact restraint selection and have the opportunity to investigate and install specialized restraint systems.  The training concludes with a proficiency exam that evaluates the student’s ability to assess appropriate restraints and to demonstrate proper use and installation.

Over 400 child passenger safety technicians from around the country have completed the course and 75 have met the requirements to instruct the training.  If you are interested in receiving more information about training opportunities, please contact Automotive Safety Program at 1-800-KID-N-CAR and the National Center for the Safe Transportation of Children with Special Health Care Needs at 1-800-755-0912.
