ITSA trained technicians – becoming certified with CPSAC

The Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada (CPSAC) strives to be a leader in providing training, promoting best practice, and respecting parents and caregivers while educating on child passenger safety (CPS) in Canada.

We are able to offer the opportunity to certify with CPSAC online at no cost to any current ITSA trained technician, without travel or in-person requirements.  

This initiative is intended to support those technicians who are currently trained though ITSA who would like a way to continue Child Passenger Safety work in their communities.
