To capture data electronically at car seat check events, the National Safety Council has led an effort to develop a standardized National Digital Car Seat Check Form (NDCF) in partnership with Tennessee Tech University iCube, participating child passenger safety technicians (CPSTs), with support from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah.
Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians (CPSTs) and instructors can input data directly into this digital form and then use the information collected to monitor trends and highlight issues encountered in the field. This new optional resource has been developed by technicians for technicians, and can be used three different ways once CPSTs create a free user account.*
*Allow 3-5 business days for new user account approval. CPSTs will need to upload a copy of their current certification card. To find your certification card, visit the Safe Kids Certification How To page at: http://cert.safekids.org/resources-faqs/how-to.
**Electronic devices and data plans are not provided.
***At this time, Safe Kids Buckle Up Coalitions are required to continue using the branded Safe Kids paper checklist form for all registered events and inspection stations.
