External Training Opportunities

In addition to the training opportunities Recreation Connections Manitoba is able to offer, many organizations in our province and across the country offer exciting opportunities for recreation professionals to expand their skills and knowledge.  We would like to thank the organizations that have submitted content for this page and invite you to explore all of these great training courses that are available.

The Canadian Playground Safety Institute

The Canadian Playground Safety Institute (CPSI) is offering a course in Manitoba this fall for participants who need to obtain their Canadian Certified Playground Inspector status, or who just want playground safety training.

If you know any, maintenance/public works personnel, daycare staff, health inspectors, owner/operators, private inspectors, contractors, manufacturers, installers, parks and recreation staff, and/or insurance agents who work – or support the use of quality playground equipment – in schools, municipalities, housing complexes, condominiums or other areas that contain public playground structures, please forward this information to them.

These professionals who are responsible for designing, selling, installing, maintaining and inspecting playground equipment have an incredibly important job. They are helping ensure the safety of toddlers, children and youth across this province and in local neighbourhoods.

These dedicated people, and their employers – can be confident they have the most up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge about playground safety when they complete the CPSI’s Playground Inspector Certification courses.
