FAQ: What is the Renewal Course and who is it for? >> READ MORE
Technicians whose certifications have expired are eligible to take the 8-hour Certification Renewal Course.
This class is designed to renew the certification for expired technicians who wish to become nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs) again. After successfully completing this class, students will be re-certified and be able to provide both individual and group CPS education. Teaching strategies include lecture, skills testing, and a written test. A minimum score of 84% is required to pass the written test.

It is expected that students attempting to renew their certifications stayed involved in CPS programs and activities, have kept up with changes in the field by reading technical updates, attending other CPS classes, and working with non-expired technicians to keep their installation skills current, but who - for one reason or another - allowed their certifications to expire
