Guam - In order to ensure that child passenger injuries and deaths are prevented, DPW's Office of Highway Safety began its Annual Standardized Child Passenger Safety Technician Training today.  Occupant Protection Program Coordinator Therese Matanane says upon the completion of the four day intense training, participants will be certified cps technicians.

"Because a lot of times, parents think that when they purchase a child restraint, they could put it in a vehicle and buckle it up but there's more to that than buckling up the child restraint, you need to ensure that the child restraint is properly installed and tight enough that it doesn't move more than an inch from the belt path," she said.

Parents can learn about child restraints this weekend when officials will hold a free child passenger inspection at cars plus in Maite. The event will be held from 10 to 12 on Saturday and if you have a child restraint that's been recalled, it will be replaced with a brand new car seat.
