Baby Safety Month is the perfect time to make sure your car seat is installed correctly. Choosing and using the right car seat is important, but what’s also imperative is to make sure the car seat is installed properly. Vehicle-related injuries are the leading cause of death in children who travel.
The Journey to Expertise:
In May 2021, several dedicated Baby Gear Experts recognized the importance of enhancing their knowledge and officially became Certified Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST). Today, the majority of our experts hold CPST certifications, providing them with the expertise to not only install car seats accurately but also guide parents through the process. This commitment reflects our dedication to ensuring the safety of every child during their travels.
Overcoming Installation Challenges:
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that a staggering 60% of parents find car seat installation somewhat frustrating. This frustration is not surprising, given that almost half of parents haven't installed car seats boosters, posing a serious safety hazard to their children. Recognizing this, our CPSTs have undergone rigorous training in a comprehensive four-day course, investing over 30 hours to master the intricacies of different car seat types, latches, and the art of proper installation.
The Importance of CPST Certification:
Becoming a Certified Passenger Safety Technician involves intensive training in various aspects of child passenger safety. CPSTs are equipped with the knowledge needed to address the unique challenges posed by different car seats and vehicles, ensuring a secure fit that minimizes the risk of injury during travel. Their commitment to ongoing education and proficiency in the latest safety standards make CPSTs an invaluable resource for parents seeking peace of mind.
