WA CPS Program Update, September 30, 2022


The NDCF website system will be down for maintenance on October 3 and 4 to update the website and apps. There will be a few fields added to the app, so to prevent any issues getting checks into the system, make sure to submit all checks in prior to October 2. Here are the updated forms to use now.

We also have a supplement to the original NDCF User Guide. We are always learning from experience with this form/program. If you have information, questions, or information that might help others, join us for our next Q&A virtual session on October 19th at 2pm (I sent an invitation to all Washington certified child passenger safety technicians).

Washington State has developed their own curriculum for child transporters which was recently updated/revised. There are some requirements to teaching the Car Seat Awareness Class; beginning with watching the Train-the-Trainer virtual training. In case you missed it; the recorded training will be available by visiting www.wacarseats.com, Technician Resources, Car Seat Awareness Class. You must also attend the virtual class to see how it is currently being taught. Look online for more information.


Thank you for the continued opportunity to support the important work you do for our State’s children.
