Car Seat Installation Support
Elaine is a certified car seat technician (CPST) who became interested in child passenger safety after her daughter was born in 2012. Trained and certified by the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada (CPSAC) since 2014, she has become a passionate advocate for the proper use and installation of child restraints for all ages and stages.
Her experience includes educating across various social media platforms, consulting with parents through email and private in-person appointments, as well as working in the retail baby gear industry.
Whether you are a new or experienced parent, there is plenty to know about car seat safety! When you book an appointment with a certified car seat technician (CPST), you will get peace of mind knowing that your installation is secure and your child is properly restrained.
The CPST will thoroughly inspect your car seat installation and teach you the right techniques to fix any errors. You will also learn how to use the car seat correctly, ensure your child is properly fitted and discuss a variety of safety topics and best practice recommendations.
