The New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and the Otsego County Public Health Department in partnership with AAA Northeast are bringing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s “National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training Course” to Cooperstown.  The course will be held at the Meadows Office Complex at 140 County Highway 33W, Cooperstown, NY 13326 from April 18 – 21, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  There is an $85 fee to register.

According to AAA Northeast, the "course is intended to provide students with a basic level of understanding in the challenging field of child passenger safety (CPS). The curriculum is based on the guiding principles of “Learn, Practice, Explain” so that upon successful completion, the Technician Candidate will be able to explain installation procedures to parents and caregivers and help them to safely transport their child based on the child’s age, weight, height, physical development, and needs."
