Lets Work Together

Host a course with PSIA.

Playground safety training is a common request from education departments, councils and playground companies in Australia

PSIA are able to offer CPSIA training courses at your premises and enables you with up to 15% discount on all registrations and additional saved costs on accommodation and travel for your staff if they were to attend an alternate training location we have available.

Benefits of Hosting

If you have interest in training a few staff on how to inspect playgrounds through our courses or regional from the venues we have available, hosting may be for you! Save the cost of accommodation and travel from sending staff to our available locations by getting our trainer to come to you. PSIA offers up to 15% discount on any registrations made through your organisation.

The PSIA Difference

Our main point of difference is our trainer, Lynnel Crockart who is a National and International qualified inspector with thousands of playground inspections and surface testing, and 30 years of experience behind her.

Our trainer is a highly experienced professional who is actively providing industry consultation and advice, inspection and testing of playgrounds across Australia.  Students will receive and can discuss current industry issues, practices and actual situations and how to best manage them with one of the most experienced and go to trainers in Australia.

Lynnel is highly passionate about this industry and child safety in both the public and private sector along with the importance and need of risk-taking, safe developmental fun and educational play in the playground and this too adds value to the training.

Playground Safety Inspectors Australia is a small business, when you support us you are supporting a dream. You will not find a trainer more passionate about playground safety.

Requirements

At a minimum we require 10 registrations to host a CPSIA course – these registrations can be from just your organisation or accumulated from inviting others from your area to attend the course. If required, PSIA will assist in reaching minimum numbers for the course, please note your request to host without fulfilling minimum numbers may require up to 4 months to garner numbers and confirm the course.

You will need to provide; a training room (air conditioned/heated) that can comfortably fit 10-25 (approx.); assist our trainer with some audio and visual aids; have a data projector, screen, and whiteboard; and nominate 8 playgrounds in close proximity to the venue (non-compliant and compliant) for the trainer to use in the practical and assessment components of the course.
