CPS technicians work in a variety of settings including; Fire and Rescue departments, Police departments, Hospitals, Day care centers, Pediatric offices, or are just dedicated community members. CPS technicians and instructors use their considerable knowledge and expertise at a variety of community-based activities, such as child safety seat checks, where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance.
