According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 205,000 children are treated for playground accidents annually, with approximately 15 resulting in death. Of these, 70% occurred at public parks and schoolyards. Does your equipment measure up? How many preventable injuries occurred in your parks?

Sponsored by the Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), this course is the most comprehensive training program offered on playground hazard identification and risk management methods. Advanced reading and ten hours of training will prepare you to take the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Exam, which will take place on the last day.

  • NRPA and the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) course promotes children’s rights to play and the importance of play in a child’s development.
  • CPSI provides the most current comprehensive training program on public playground safety, including the development and distribution of playground training and safety products.
  • CPSI provides input to help develop a responsible public policy which guarantees the safety of our children. At the same time, CPSI advocates sound fiscal responsibility to provide resources for the ongoing maintenance and support of the policy.


It is the mission of the Illinois Park and Recreation Association to provide and promote exceptional standards of education, networking, and resources for all professionals in the Illinois park, recreation, and conservation communities.
