Get Certified as a Playground Safety Inspector at the 2023 Region II Head Start Conference

This year, we are partnering with the National Recreation and Parks Association to bring a new opportunity to you at our conference. The National Recreation and Park Association offers the industry-leading certification program in playground safety, the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) certification program.

Why Become a CPSI at this Year’s Conference?

The Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) certification program is the most comprehensive training program on playground hazard identification and risk management methods offered nationwide. By becoming a CPSI, you will learn how to identify hazards on public playgrounds and playground equipment, rank those hazards according to injury potential and apply that knowledge, as well as how to establish a playground safety program. The CPSI program is typically designed for playgrounds for children ages 5-12 (but contains information that is applicable to all ages) and includes a course and exam at the end. CPSI certification is valid for three years.

Benefits of taking the course include:

  • The opportunity to learn from expert instructors

  • Protect children from injury due to playground hazards

  • Reduce your agency’s liability and take your career to the next level

Program Requirements:

CPSI candidates should be at least 18 years of age and must have a high school diploma or equivalent.

To become a CPSI, you must successfully pass the CPSI exam. The CPSI exam consists of 100 questions, 95 scored and 5 unscored pretest. This test will be offered on-site at the conclusion of the course. CPSI certification is valid for three years.

Does the CPSI Course count for CEUs?

The CPSI Course is worth 1.5 CEUs in addition to the certification.

What is the cost?

Each participant will need to pay $425 in order to take the course and exam for certification.
