(Virtual) Certified Playground Safety Inspector Course & Exam

Thursday, April 25, 2024 at 8 am - 12 pm 

Playing outdoors is a major component in the health and wellness of our children. It is our responsibility to ensure safe, enjoyable play areas for all. CPRS, in conjunction with NRPA, are offering the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) course and certification to properly train and certify you to recognize and prevent potential playground hazards. Courses are designed for park and rec staff, school districts, child care facilities, health departments, landscape architects, playground manufacturers, installers, contractors, insurance firms, home owner's associations and more.

Candidates who successfully pass the exam will be considered a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) and will be added to the National Registry.  Obtaining CPSI certification will meet the State of California requirements regarding the inspection of playgrounds. Did you know recertification is required every three years?  

Whether you are recertifying or pursuing a certification for the first time, we invite you to join us for a "blended learning" experience which entails: 
  • 12 hours of pre-recorded learning modules (to be completed at your own pace in advance of live instruction)
  • Virtual live instruction on Thursday, April 25, 2024 from 8 am - 12 pm 
  • An exam at a convenient location near you

This course is available to CPRS members for $575 and non-members for $650.
