This class focuses on three main objectives – First, students will learn about Iowa’s Child Passenger Safety Law and Best Practice Guidelines. Next will be discussion on positioning baby into a car seat and how to appropriately secure the harness. Lastly, the class will discuss how to install a car seat into a vehicle. This includes demonstrations with the seat belt system, LATCH system and built-in lock-offs. Bringing your car seat to class is not required, but is an option if it would assist with your learning. Installing car seats into individual participants’ vehicles is not included during class, one-on-one appointments can be scheduled with the instructor for a later date.
Car seats are very effective when used correctly – approximately 90% of car seats in Iowa are used incorrectly. Learn how to keep your child safe with a properly installed car seat in this two hour class.
