Transportation and Field Trip Safety Online Training

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved, nationally accredited, online training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care and education workforce, is proud to announce the addition of ADM103: Basic Transportation and Field Trip Safety for Child Care Centers to the online child care training course catalog.

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for persons age 5 through 29 years of age according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but most deaths and injuries are preventable if caregivers apply proper, recommended safety practices. Basic Transportation and Field Trip Safety for Child Care Centers presents recommended practices and policies for safe, developmentally appropriate transport of young children to and from child care centers and/or field trips. Topics include staff training and support; recommended vehicle types and maintenance routines; child passenger restraint systems; operating procedures and practices; safe loading and unloading procedures; field trip safety, and more.

“It is imperative that all providers be well trained in transportation safety procedures, and many states now mandate such training for all center staff,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “ADM103 provides the latest research-based recommendations and promotes a solid understanding of how providers can implement a complete transportation plan that ensures safety and security to the greatest extent possible.”

ADM103 is a two-hour, beginner level course and is available for purchase through online enrollment on the CCEI website. There is no additional cost to current individual or center-based subscription account holders.
