Certified Playground Safety Inspector
March 28 - March 30, 2017
Calling all east-siders! We will be hosting a CPSI course in May prior to the WRPA Annual Conference & Tradeshow. Registration for the Spokane CPSI will open soon!
What is CPSI?
Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) course promotes children’s rights to play and promotes nationally the importance play has to a child’s development.
Did you know? According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, it is estimated that each year over 205,850 injuries occur on playgrounds and approximately fifteen children will die from playground related injuries.
This course is the most comprehensive training program on playground hazard identification and risk management methods offered anywhere. Advanced reading and fifteen hours of training from nationally known playground safety experts will prepare participants to "sit” for the Certified Playground Safety Inspector Examination offered at the culmination of the certification course.
This course is a must for staff from park and recreation agencies, schools districts, child care facilities, health departments, landscape architecture firms, playground manufacturers, installers or contractors, insurance firms and others responsible for play equipment areas or playgrounds.
Help our children by designing, installing, and maintaining safe playgrounds.
NOTE: Meals will be provided for the days of the course, but not on day of the test. We encourage you to also bring snacks and water canteens.
