The International Association for Child Safety has developed the childproofing industry's first and only professional certification program. The Certified Professional Childproofer® designation recognizes those professionals who have met specific qualifications and criteria, and have proven through testing and client interaction that they possess the broad knowledge and experience required for certification.
The certification program is voluntary and designed to benefit both individuals in the babyproofing profession and the clients they serve. Clients will value the peace of mind that comes with knowing their childproofing products and services are being provided by a Certified Professional Childproofer consultant or an Advanced Certified Professional Childproofer consultant.
The certification program incorporates safety standards and best practices related to injury prevention, safety products, and installation. The program focuses on increasing the professionalism of the child safety industry by:
Identifying a body of knowledge for the childproofing profession;
Establishing the level of knowledge and experience required for certification for babyproofers;
Recognizing and raising industry standards, practices, and ethics; and
Maximizing the value of products and services provided by a professional who has earned the CPC designation.
