Training for Car Seat Checking

I require training for car seat checking and was wondering if anyone knew of any organisations providing this training for road safety professionals? I am a newly appointed Road Safety Support Officer at Barnet and have not received any previous training in relation to car seat checks.

RE: Training for Car Seat Checking

Hi Jeffrey,

Worth checking out in case you're not aware of the Good Egg Guide in-car safety checks.

There was an article on the Road Safety GB website a couple of years ago and we've since held in-car safety check clinics here in Medway, see:

Hope this helps,

Car Seats

Britax used to run a course, free to Road Safety Professional. Although it is obviously manufacturer specific it is or was a very good course. Tracey

car seat training

Britax trained me. They have an amazing setup in their HQ at Romsey/Andover - something like that. They showed us the whys and wherefores and then trained us how to choose the right seat for a car and the correct way to fit them We have run carseat check days annually ever since.

Training for Car Seat Checking

Hi Jeffrey,

Here in Birmingham we had our training through Stork Talk. They can offer tailored training sessions on the correct installation of child safety restraints in motor vehicles, covering Road Traffic Act requirements, car seat groups, harness position and adjustment, tips and techniques for
easy installation.
Daimon Marriot delivered the training and can be contacted at-
Stork Talk (Midlands) Ltd
The training was highly recommended.

Kind Regards,

Jenny Coombs
