    Exclamation Technician course in MB

    I just received this email:


    Become a Child Car Seat Technician!

    If you're interested in promoting child passenger safety in Manitoba, consider becoming a certified Child Restraint Systems (CRS) technician. National certification is provided through St. John's Ambulance.

    The training is conducted by Manitoba Public Insurance.
    If you're already trained as a technician but you know others that'd be interested, please forward this to your contacts.

    What is a Child Car Seat Technician?

    Primary role of technicians: Increase the awareness and correct use of children's restraints systems and seat belts for children in their community. Technicians conduct and/or supervise programs that require technical expertise.

    After participating in this course, you'd be able to:

    select appropriate car seats or restraint systems for children and correctly secure them in these systems;
    install children's restrain systems in various vehicles;
    organize and coordinate clinics; and,
    you can be a resource to your community about child passenger safety.

    Course Information

    This 2-day course will provide you with the ability to:

    Educate;
    Encourage; and,
    Support parents and caregivers on how to properly restrain their children while on the road.

    The course is free and covered by Manitoba Public Insurance.

    Winnipeg
    Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5
    Location: Manitoba Public Insurance
    234 Donald Street (City Place)
    Room 850

    Brandon
    Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2
    Location: To Be Announced
    Time: 9:00 to 4:30 p.m.

    If neither of these dates (or the location) suit you or your organization, please let me know. Each course can accommodate up to 12 people and if you'd like one specifically for your region, please let me know. I can put together a course for your area, at your request.

    Warm Regards,
    Jeanie

    Awesome! I was supposed to call to get her number today, but I forgot. So now I'll have to find out if we can have a course in our area.

    The Manitoba Carseat Coaliton will also be doing courses and Janice said that they would be online ones which is great for those who can't travel. Might be worth checking into also.

    I don't think the Manitoba Coalition is certified to give the National course any more. Also, SJA has not authorized on-line stuff. I'd check it out very carefully to make sure you are getting the right training.

    The Coalition has broken away from SJA.
