Ensuring that the educator can make adjustments to the harness and re-install the car seats correctly should the need arise.

Summary FDC Car Seat Audit

The Family day care centre car seat audit; is a task that should only be undertaken by an experienced mobile car seat fitter accredited by the ACRI; and not be an inexperienced franchise operator who perhaps only has less than 1000 car seats.

Compare this to the experience of child restraint fitting team working since 2012.
