Is CPR Training Mandatory for Your High School Student?

In Texas this has been a requirement since 2013!

"The State Board of Education by rule shall require instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation for students in grades 7 through 12. The instruction may be provided as a part of any course. A student shall receive the instruction at least once before graduation. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation instruction must include training that has been developed: by the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross; or using nationally recognized, evidence-based guidelines for emergency cardiovascular care and incorporating psychomotor skills to support the instruction. For purposes of Subsection (e), “psychomotor skills” means hands-on practice to support cognitive learning. The term does not include cognitive-only instruction and training."
