Child Passenger Safety Class for Daycare/ Foster Care (C.A.R.S)

We apologize; but until further notice, we have halted all of our CARS classes.  If you would like to be notified of when we are starting the classes again, please email 








Please scroll down for upcoming dates.

This class satisfies the requirement of the 2005 Minnesota  law (MN 245A.18) that requires all daycare and foster care providers in the state of MN to complete a 3-hour child passenger safety training class in order to transport children under the age of nine.  This course uses the only curriculum that has been approved by the State of Minnesota.

Update: The State of Minnesota is now encouraging all class participants to register with Develop, the State’s online learning tracking, in addition to our registration.  Certificates will no longer be given at the class.  You can print them from the Develop website.  If you do not yet have a Develop ID, you can create one here: You must still register for the class on this site.
