Transportation

Providers who transport children are required to take a training on safe transportation practices every 2 years.

Children’s Licensing and Investigation Services is pleased to be working with the Bureau of Highway Safety to promote and provide state approved transportation training.  The Bureau of Highway Safety is offering free Child Care Provider Transporter Training to providers throughout the state.  This half-day training will be offered on Saturdays at several locations statewide.  This training is required of any staff or volunteer in a child care facility or family child care that transports children as part of their regular duties, and is strongly encouraged for nursery school providers.  Certificates will be awarded upon completion of this training. You must register to attend.  Contact information for each training is listed below. Limit of 5 staff from one childcare program. Classes fill quick-register early. Contact Catherine.A.Paglio@maine.gov for info and to register for any of these trainings.


Completing an online transportation safety course instead of the live class, requires a visit to a local car seat installation program to have the live consultation of installing a seat with guidance in your vehicle.
