Charles Clement is the president and chief executive officer of SEARHC in Juneau, Alaska, a position he has held since 2012. Prior to taking on his current role, Charles Clement spent 13 years as chief operating officer of Southcentral Foundation in Anchorage.

SEARHC is a not-for-profit organization committed to optimizing the health of all Southeast Alaska residents, with initiatives designed to address not only physical health, but psychological and spiritual health as well. SEARHC provides the local community with services on an array of health topics, including safety courses regarding child passengers in automobiles.

In the past, SEARHC and the Alaska CPS Coalition have joined together to bring child passenger safety courses to local communities, thereby providing residents with the opportunity to join the more than 36,000 certified child passenger technicians (CPST) throughout the United States. In addition to helping individuals become an educational resource or active advocate for child passenger safety, CPST safety courses feature a thorough tutorial on car seat safety checks, an invaluable skill for any parent or guardian.

CPST training courses take place over the course of three days. Individuals must be able to attend the complete course in order to achieve certification. To learn more about safety training courses and other services by SEARHC, please visit
