Kidsafe Qld offers nationally recognised training courses in car seat or child car seat restraint fitting. These courses are suitable for people wanting to start their own service-based business or for organisations wanting their employees to be able to offer better customer service.

Back To Basics: Transporting children safely for every trip

This 3-hour professional development workshop offers a 1-hour child car restraint presentation and a 2-hour practical skills session. 

The presentation covers the essential information on child car restraint usage, including the need for child car restraints, the correct installation and adjustment techniques and an overview of relevant legislation and standards.

The hands-on practical session provides participants with the opportunity to select, adjust, and install the restraints they use to transport children in their care. 

This workshop does not provide a qualification, unlike the One Day Child Restraint Course or the Type 1 Child Car Restraint Fitting Course. However, the advantage of this workshop is that you receive training for the specific seats you use, not generic categories of seats.All attendees receive a certificate of attendance

  • We can run multiple sessions in a day if you have a large number of staff

Kidsafe Staff can also complete an audit of your child car restraints to ensure they are in good condition and appropriate for the ages of children you are transporting. We can also recommend and supply new child car restraints where necessary

Cost:  $975 incl. GST per session with a min of 5 and max of 10 participants
