Sponsored by the NRPA and hosted by the Pennsylvania Recreation & Park Society, this course is the most comprehensive training program on playground hazard identification and risk management methods offered. Advanced reading and ten hours of training will prepare you to sit for the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Exam, scheduled at the culmination of the certification course.
The CPSI Course trains individuals to identify hazards on public playgrounds and playground equipment, how to rank hazards according to injury potential, and how to apply that knowledge and establish a playground safety program.
The course covers the material necessary to pass the Certified Playground Safety Inspector certification exam.
Upon completion of the CPSI course, an individual should be capable of establishing a sound risk reduction program, establish a system repair, retrofit, and removal of hazardous equipment, and establish a routine inspection system for their agency or playground owner-client.
Resource materials developed especially for this course are included in the registration fee and will be mailed to all participants who pre-register.
