    Question Children’s Restraint System Course Question

    How much does it cost to take this course in British Columbia? How long does it last? I have a number I can call but it is the weekend I was wondering if anyone had the information

    This is where I got the information from ~ http://www.sja.ca/bc/childseat/childseat.htm

    Re: Children’s Restraint System Course Question

    I honestly can't remember if it was 2 in class then 1/2 a day and a 1/2 day check or 3 in class and then 1/2 and 1/2. I think the former. The cost, if you have to pay, is around $500. I paid it, but I know that most people who have taken the course since in order to help their community have had it waived. I think I was one of the first people to take it out of personal interest and nobody really knew what to do with me! Unfortunately we were on parental leave at the time and not working, so $500 was almost 100% of our monthly income. I did it anyways, and it was worth every penny!

    Where are you located? I can put you into contact with the instructor if you'd like. I think I may also have the direct SJA contact's information as well.

    I am near Vancouver, BC. I would love to take this course just because I am one of the 'nags' about carseats already and with the training I would be able to back up what I was saying.

    SJA runs the course in their building just south of Oakridge Mall. Linda Reid is the instructor, and a good point of contact. If you email me, I can give you her contact information (although you can technically just call SJA, Linda can probably get you exempted from the course fee...) My email is duckie at addikt dot com.
