WA CPS Update

We are happy to announce that we now have February dates for our 3rd annual 7-week CEU series open. The 2024 CEU Series is brought to you by Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, Safe Kids Santa Clara San Mateo and funded, in part, by the California Department of Public Health Kids’ Plates Program. In response to last year’s feedback, this year we have several Child Passenger Safety advocates, educators and researchers discussing topics ranging from transporting children with special healthcare needs to new research in Child Passenger Safey.

For those of you who are Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST), each session in the series is worth 1 CEU, so if you attend the entire series, you will be covered for recertification! The series is being offered virtually, and sign-up is required for each individual session. Registration links for February dates below!
