Playground Safety Inspector course and exam

Print Details Type of event: Other Events

SIA is hosting the Playground Safety Inspector course and exam for our member districts.  The Playground Safety Certification provides the authority to examine playgrounds for compliance with California regulations R-39-97. 

The course is the most comprehensive training program on playground hazard identification and risk management methods offered in North America.  Advanced reading and 15 hours of training from nationally known playground safety experts will prepare you for the Certified Playground Safety Inspector examination offered on the third day.

The course and exam normally cost up to $700 but SIA is covering the cost because we know the value of having our members trained in identifying and correcting playground hazards.  New playgrounds and altered playgrounds are required to have an initial inspection completed and on file.  Schools are also required to perform routine inspections and maintenance.  This course will provide the training needed to meet the regulations.

To register, please complete the registration form and submit it to CPRS (California Park & Recreation Society) directly. Registrations will be accepted until the class has reached 25 attendees (not 40 or 80 as noted on the registration form) and not after June 14th.  SIA will submit payment directly the CPRS; no payment information is required at the time of registration however please complete all the enrollment information including registration fee and exam fee amounts (but NOT Method of Payment section).

Although CPRS will be handling the registrations, please let me know if you or a member of your staff will be attending. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
