The Indian Health Service is pleased to provide the 2009 version of the Safe Native American Passengers (SNAP) training for child passenger safety. Designed after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) National Standardized Child Passenger Safety Training, this 12-hour course is Native American specific and introduces attendees to the basic concepts of child passenger safety (CPS).
Since it was first released in 2003, the SNAP course has had an important impact in developing tribal capacity in CPS. Currently SNAP is taught in over 60 tribal communities a year and reaches 500 safety advocates annually. Many attendees have gone on to become NHTSA CPS Technicians whom now serve as important resources to their local communities.
The intended audience for this course is anyone who works in American Indian / Alaskan Native communities and is interested in CPS. Participants may include checkup event volunteers, Health Educators, Community Health Representatives, EMS personnel, Fire personnel, Law Enforcement, Tribal Environmental Health Specialists/Practitioners, and Child Care Providers.
This updated version includes format changes and technical updates to reflect the changes made in the National Standardized Child Passenger Safety Training Program Curriculum in 2007, but the program focus remains the same.

A NOTE TO SNAP USERS:
The SNAP course does not offer certification and does not replace, supplant or serve as a substitute for the National Standardized Child Passenger Safety Training Program technician course but rather serves as an introduction to CPS or preparatory training for the NHTSA CPS Technician Course
