Each Workshop will consist of ‘absolute must know’ factual information alongside practical sessions which will be delivered by our experts.

Participants will learn how to fit different groups/makes of child seats, how to avoid common errors and how to fix them. Engaging and fun group activities are included.

This training is an extension of the successful training programme pilot provided for Health Practitioners, and can include additional hands-on practical training for staff to practice fitting their child seats into vehicle / bus.

  • How to choose a child seat and the information required to ensure it will safely fit both child and vehicle/s
  • The law and differences in legislation
