Upcoming Child Passenger Safety Webinars

In order to help Child Passenger Safety Technicians receive the continuing education they need to maintain certification, the BuckleUpNC program has committed to bringing quality webinars to Technicians. To achieve this the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, Governor’s Highway Safety Program, and Safe Kids North Carolina have collaborated to bring the following 2021 Child Passenger Safety webinar series to NC Technicians. Additional webinars will be added as they are scheduled. Safe Kids Certification also has CEU opportunities listed on their website. Information about the 2020 webinar series is available here.

Pre-registration is required and login information will be emailed. Proof of attendance that includes the Event ID will be emailed following the session. To earn CEUs you must attend via the personalized link emailed to you when you register and be logged in for the entire webinar. If you forward your personalized link to others or share a computer, those you share with will not receive an email with CEU documentation. Everyone who wants to earn CEUs should register separately. Webinars will not be recorded.
