Safe Native American Passengers (SNAP) Courses


Designed after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) National Standardized Child Passenger Safety Training, this 4-6 hour course is specific to Native Americans and introduces attendees to the basic concepts of child passenger safety (CPS). The intended audience for this course is anyone who works in American Indian Alaska Native communities and is interested in CPS. Participants can include checkup event volunteers, Health Educators, Community Health Representatives, EMS personnel, Fire personnel, Law Enforcement, Tribal Environmental Health Specialists or Practitioners, and Child Care Providers. The SNAP course does not offer certification and does not replace, supplant or serve as a substitute for the nationally certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Technician training course. Rather, it serves as an introduction to CPS or preparatory training for the national CPS Technician certification course. Many SNAP course attendees have gone on to become certified CPS Technicians who now serve as important resources to their local communities. For more information about SNAP, visit the IHS Injury Prevention Program. Visit site: https://www.ihs.gov/injuryprevention/training/snap/




Child Passenger Safety Technician Continuing Education Units (CEUs)


Part of being recertified as a CPS technician or instructor is completing at least six hours of CPS technical continuing education units (CEUs) during your current two-year certification cycle. CEUs do not carry over from one period to the next, even if you have completed more than the required six hours. TIPRC is able to teach the “Category 1: In-Person Update” with a maximum of six allowable hours. This course is taught in-person and is a structured presentation that meets content requirements.

Older Adult CarFit Training (Coming Soon)


CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them. The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community. Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, and less likely to speed or drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur due to the greater fragility of their aging bodies. Older drivers can improve their safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others. Visit site: https://www.car-fit.org/




National Safety Council Defensive Driving Safety Training Program (Coming Soon)


Delivered in a range of affordable options and formats to meet the needs of organizations, employees, drivers, and vehicle types, this training provides: leading-edge curriculum for greater comprehension and content retention; cost effective training solutions for organizations of all sizes; immediate and post-incident training, when timing is crucial; new employee or refresher training; remote, onsite and customized training; and flexibility for ease of scheduling and student participation.
