CPR Requirements In Washington Schools

CPR Seattle Has A Solution For Your School District

The new Washington State Law (effective for the 2013-2014 school year) requiring all high school students to have CPR/AED instruction poses a huge logistical challenge for schools. We can help. CPR Seattle can assist your school district to comply with the new law by helping you implement your CPR training program. As an American Heart Assocation Training Center and a leader in the training industry for 8 years, we can assist you with:

  • Purchasing a video program that meets the requirements of the law.
  • Providing you with reliable equipment that is built to last, as well as the necessary supplies to teach your own classes.
  • Or, we can travel to your school and conduct the training. You don't have to worry about finding an instructor, purchasing and maintaining an inventory of supplies, or purchasing, cleaning, and maintaining CPR instruction equipment. Our highly experienced instructors offer effective, concise training that will fully meet the necessary requirements.

We can travel to your office for a free consultation. Call us at 206-504-3280 or email cpr@cprseattle.com

Details of House Bill 1556:

2) The instruction must be through a program developed by the American Heart Association or other nationally recognized organization.

3) The program must include hands-on training in addition to cognitive learning.

4) The program must include information on how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). It is acceptable to deliver this content by video.
