All U.S. certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians can create a FREE NDCF account.

Account Information: How the Process Works

Allow 1 to 3 business days for your new account to be approved and activated. New NDCF account holders will be sent an email containing a username and password once the account has been approved. The username and password must be changed on initial login.

CPSTs must plan ahead to ensure their account has been approved prior to using the NDCF at car seat check event. Technicians are strongly encouraged to practice using the NDCF prior to their first event. Select “Practice” from the State dropdown menu in the NDCF to learn how to use the platform.

  • Attention: New and current accounts will be suspended until current proof of certification has been submitted. Upload a copy of the updated wallet card found in individual Safe Kids online certification profiles with new account request and upon recertification.
  • Note: Other forms of certification verification will not be accepted.
