Are your playgrounds the safest they could be? Can you identify hazards in public playgrounds and implement a safety plan? If the answer to any of these questions is no, you could be a good fit for the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Certification Program!

By taking this course you will receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date training on playground safety issues.
