    I started my CPST course today...

    and it was AWESOME!

    I have two wonderful instructors who both seem very up to date on their information and like great advocates for CPS. YAY! It was really cool to learn about all the different crash stuff... the seatbelt stuff I pretty much knew already from (mostly lurking) here, but always good to get to see/use the different kinds.

    Tomorrow we get to play with seats - woohoo! You guys have turned me into a complete geek... and I'm lovin' it! Off to read my manual...

    Yeah, I registered for this back in March and I've been going a little nuts waiting, lol! There are three other seat geeks in the class too (two who I know frequent/lurk on here) so it was great to actually meet some people like us!

    Seriously, if you can find a course, TAKE IT! It just reaffirms everything I already believe in and gives me some ground to stand on when educating others! I'm smitten...

    Too bad I couldn't sign up for this one and have to wait until later in the summer. I ended up with a work conflict -- one of those you don't have to attend, but you are responsible for knowing 3 days of information the end of next week. The training I'm looking at signing up for lists the instructors as the same, I think.

    I remember my first day at CPST class: I walked into the station and all the car seats were every where.......I felt like I died and went to heaven.
