In House Training

ICSC is a specialist business dedicated to persuading parents and professionals alike, that children’s car safety 'is not expensive, it’s priceless'.

ICSC organises and provides in car safety training programmes, endorsed by ROSPA, targeting road safety professionals and those with a responsibility for transporting children.

The programmes provide the participants with the necessary detailed understanding to change attitudes and make a real difference.

  • Gain an understanding of child physiology and why they need such targeted protection
  • Understand the regulations that 'control' the manufacture of car seats and legislation determining their use
  • Acquire the fundamental knowledge to define what is described as a 'suitable restraint' 
  • Learn how advances in vehicle technology may have negative influences as well as a positive influence on the performance of a child's car seat

ICSC training programmes are designed to provide participants with interactive training. We challenge individuals and groups to grasp the premise that we should want to do more to protect our vulnerable children not just enough to meet the minimum requirements of the law.
