Certified Playground Safety Inspector Course

Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Course

CPRS, in conjunction with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) are dedicated to promoting children's right to play in a safe and challenging play environment. The CPSI program offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date training on playground safety as well as provides certification for playground safety inspectors.

The CPSI certification course is designed to train professionals to:

  • identify hazards on public playground equipment and grounds
  • rank hazards according to injury potential
  • apply knowledge gained to remove hazards
  • establish a system of inspections and maintenance

To find success in this program, we recommend you take the certification course, then sit for the 100 question exam. Upon successful completion of the exam, students will be certified with the National Recreation & Park Association, with a required renewal every three years. There are no pre-requisites to attend the course nor take the exam.
