Cardiopulmonary resuscitation instruction
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 17
§ 804-c. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation instruction. 1. Instructions
regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation may 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 certification by an
agency offering such certification in the performance of cardiopulmonary
resuscitation and in its instruction.

2. The commissioner may prescribe regulations governing such health
education courses which shall include instruction in cardiopulmonary
resuscitation. Such regulations shall in no event prescribe a course of
study in cardiopulmonary resuscitation which sets forth standards for
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.
