Certified Playground Safety Inspectors Course

The Certified Playground Safety Inspector Course is hosted twice annually in cooperation with the National Recreation and Park Association’s National Playground Safety Institute.  The Certified Playground Safety Inspectors (CPSI) Course is the most comprehensive and up-to-date training program on playground safety issues including hazard identification, equipment specifications, surfacing requirements and risk management methods.

Why This Course Is Important To You:

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, each year more than 200,000 children go to hospital emergency rooms with playground-related injuries. Of these, 70% of the injuries occur at public parks and schoolyards when the child falls from the equipment onto the ground.

New Jersey State Law adopted the playground safety guidelines of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission as   detailed in the "Handbook for Public Playground Safety" (Pub. No. 325). These guidelines were adopted by reference as the  Playground Safety Subcode for New Jersey and govern design, installation, inspection and maintenance of playgrounds and playground equipment.These guidelines apply to all public playgrounds in the state of New Jersey and are mandatory.
