Child Seat Safety Training

Child Seat Safety provides training and advice to anyone responsible for the fitting of child restraints and the only nationally approved training course which has been licenced by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and is certified by CPD

The IOSH Child Seat Safety Awareness training course was developed to help standardise the quality of advice & guidance being given to parents when they buy car seats or fit them for their children.

Face to Face Training – Covid Training compliant

The one day course contains 5 assessed modules which ensures you will have a high level of insight in the following categories:

  • Knowing the Law
  • Knowing the Vehicle
  • Knowing Child Development
  • Knowing the Variety of seats
  • Knowing the Customer

The certification lasts for 3 years and needs renewing within 2 months of expiry.

On completion of the course, you will receive confirmation of your 7 CPD points.

This course is not “Product Training” which is provided by many car seat manufacturers but instead works alongside their training, to enhance the knowledge of advisors and those with a keen interest in child in car safety.

Training is ideal for all those with responsibility for the fitting of child restraints, particularly in the retail, public & voluntary sectors.

Cost £225 +VAT per delegate

Please Note : Due to Covid restrictions; all trainers will be wearing clear face screens and delegates will be socially distanced, with screens available between participants. Masks, gloves and antibacterial cleaning products and hand sanitiser is available for everyone, throughout the day.

Delegates will be required to bring their own lunch and cup; bottled water and hot drinks can be made which will be provided by the trainers.

Online Training

In August 2020, the online training course was developed to account  for social distancing and non essential travel. The course is undertaken via the Zoom on line platform, with two trainers and other delegates from their remote locations. It is split over two, half days in the same week and the content is the same as the face to face courses. For those delegates who feel they would benefit from additional practical training, we offer an additional face to face; 2 hour session  with our trainers which will be undertaken at a later date at various locations around the country.


2x half days online training – £225 +VAT per delegate

2x half days online + 2 hour practical – £255 + VAT per delegate

Refresher Training

Child Seat Safety Ltd also run one day refresher courses for those that need to renew their training, this is also completed on line and requires delegates to be available for 2 , half days in the week.

Cost £195 +VAT per delegate
