According to The Community Guide, child safety seat education programs provide information about the use of child safety seats and relevant skills to parents, children, or professional groups.

Evidence of Effectiveness

CG-Motor vehicle injury finds insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of education programs alone in improving knowledge about or use of child safety seats. This conclusion is based on both a small number of available studies and variability in the interventions evaluated.
