Interested in becoming a certified child passenger safety technician? The Nebraska instructor team would like you to understand what this commitment entails. In order to maintain your knowledge and skills after completing the class, you will want to attend an event or inspection station within two months of class completion and actively participate in car seat check activities thereafter by attending a check event or inspection about once every 3-4 months. You will also want to attend the Nebraska child passenger safety technician update at least every two years. By attending this update, it will help you to get recertified (two year cycle with a fee) and stay updated on the latest information about child passenger safety. Child passenger safety is ever changing and if you do not use your knowledge and skills, you will lose them. Please watch these videos to see what a typical car seat check is like. If you have questions about becoming a child passenger safety technician, contact Jason Kerkman at 402-471-8749 or Jason.firstname.lastname@example.org.
