The Vermont Recreation & Parks Association is pleased to announce that we will be hosting both the Certified Pool/Spa Operator and Certified Playground Safety Inspector Courses this spring. Both courses will be held at the Windjammer Best Western in South Burlington and special overnight rates are available for course participants.
The Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Course is scheduled for Tuesday & Wednesday, April 4 & 5, 2017, with the written exam to follow on Thursday, April 6th. The CPSI course is the most comprehensive training program on playground identification and risk management methods offered anywhere. Program highlights include hazard identification, safe surfacing materials, playground equipment accessibility, safety management, audit objectives & procedures, and maintenance procedures & standards. The program includes a site visit to a nearby playground for hands-on learning. The course registration fee includes lunch both days, course materials mailed to participants prior to the course, and two full days of training. Course participants are eligible to take the written exam on the third day for an additional fee. The CPSI certification is valid for 3 years and VRPA hosts the CPSI course once every 3 years. Plan now to become a certified playground safety inspector this spring and/or register your maintenance staff. The CPO certification course is eligible for IACET continuing education units.
