To capture data electronically at car seat check events, the National Safety Council has led an effort to develop a standardized digital car seat check form in partnership with Tennessee Tech University iCube, participating child passenger safety technicians (CPST), with support from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah.
Nationally certified CPST and instructors can input data directly into the digital form and then use that data 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 CPST create a free user account.*
*Allow 3-5 business days for new user account approval. CPST 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 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.
