  provide instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 804-c of the education law, as added by chapter 269
of the laws of 1999, is amended to read as follows:
  S  804-c.  Cardiopulmonary  resuscitation instruction. 1. Instructions
regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation  [may]  SHALL  be  [offered  for
voluntary admission as] a part of the health education curriculum in all
senior high schools. In addition to the requirement that all teachers of
health education shall be certified to teach health, persons instructing
pupils  in  cardiopulmonary  resuscitation  shall  possess valid certif-
ication by an agency offering such certification in the  performance  of
cardiopulmonary resuscitation and in its instruction.
  2.  The  commissioner [may] SHALL prescribe regulations governing such
health education courses which shall include instruction in cardiopulmo-
nary resuscitation. Such regulations  shall  in  no  event  prescribe  a
course of study in cardiopulmonary resuscitation which sets forth stand-
ards  for  PSYCHOMOTOR  SKILL  instruction  of a lesser quality than the
requirements of the programs adopted by the American  Heart  Association
or the American Red Cross.
  3. School authorities [that choose to offer such course] shall provide
the  needed  facilities,  time  and  place for the instruction set forth
herein and shall provide learning aids and curriculum resource materials
to support such course of study.
