Child Passenger Safety Refresher Course
Safe Kids Virginia sponsored a Child Passenger Safety Refresher Course in June 2013 at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Twenty certified technicians completed the course to earn six CEU's. IIHS staff gave a facility tour including a crash test. Participants were able to visualize the results of the crash up close.
