    I want more experience!!!

    I've been a tech since March which has been great, but I want more experience than the once a month check I do here.

    Is there somewhere I can post my services to parents? I'm currently working on some preschools.
    Craigslist? Do you guys do private checks? Is it just from word of mouth?

    I gained more experience by working with a local CPST-I. She does checks every weekend, and she invited me to work with her. I learned alot from her many years of experience.

    I wouldn't suggest doing private checks just yet. Volunteer with your community coaltion. Do community checks when they start up again next year.

    Another tech & I do private checks together. Our coalition only runs a check every 2 months & there's so much desire for help that we don't feel we can not do them. We probably do 4-5 a month.
