South Kingstown Recreation Center, 30 Saint Dominic Road, Wakefield, RI 02879
The Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) course provides individuals with the proper training needed to recognize and prevent potential playground hazards and prepares them to take the Certified Playground Safety Inspector examination. CPSI certification gives inspectors the knowledge to inspect playgrounds for safety issues using current ASTM International standards and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) guidelines.
Nationally-recognized playground safety instructors provide participants with practical, hands-on instruction on how to apply the ASTM standards and the CPSC guidelines to playground environments. Course participants will learn how to:
- Identify hazards on public playgrounds and playground equipment;
- Design spaces that comply with ASTM and CPSC guidelines;
- Rank hazards according to injury potential; and
- Apply that knowledge and establish a playground safety program.
Upon completion of the CPSI course, participants will have the knowledge needed to establish a sound risk reduction program; to create a system of repair, retrofit, and removal of hazardous equipment; and to set up a routine inspection system for their agency or client. Participants will also have the most up-to-date knowledge to prepare them to take the Certified Playground Safety Inspector examination.
