Instructor ratio 1:4 with at least 2-3 class assistants (to set up all exercises and assist students) 3. Classroom facility is close to parking area with open access to and from buildings (locked facility and practice cars at a significant distance from the classroom will eat up more time) 4.

Assure teaching team reviews all assignments, activities before class begins and is flexible to change agenda as needed throughout the course 6. Go through chapter by chapter with instructor team to determine all needs prior to class 7. Have activities structured with teaching assignments to assure consistency (for example, Exercise in Chapter 4, have index cards with pre-determined teaching assignment/message per vehicle with 1 assigned lead and standard message) 8. In Chapter 11: Focus on demonstrating proper booster seat installation because booster seat installation is not required in skills evaluation #2 9. In role playing chapter 14, incorporate a role play activity that demonstrates an installation from start to finish as would occur at a checkup event.
