New Child Car Restraint Type 1 Fitters in the Pilbara

WALGA RoadWise conducted a Type 1 Child Car Restraint Fitters Course in Karratha last month.

Participants, who came from Karratha, Roebourne and Tom Price, now have the skills and knowledge to educate and assist their communities about the safest way to transport their children.

The course is nationally accredited, containing both theoretical and practical components. On completion, participants become part of a state-wide network of qualified Type 1 Fitters and are given ongoing support including access to
resources, advice and the opportunity for refresher training in the future.

A correctly fitted, appropriate child car restraint can reduce the risk of death or serious injury to a child in a crash.

Having more local people trained as Type 1 Fitters means more parents and carers can access advice and help to ensure their children are safely transported.
