METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training be incorporated into the required health education class.  The training shall include an opportunity to practice and master psychomotor skill-based CPR and an overview of automated external defibrillator (AED) use.  The Department of Education assumes this bill would apply to public high schools and the training would be included as part of the program study of health required for high school graduation.  The Department further assumes one staff member from each public high school will need CPR/AED training (if currently there are no such individuals at the school) and this person would provide to students the training required under this bill.  While the exact cost of this bill cannot be estimated across all high schools, the Department has provided the following data for informational purposes:
