GET HIGH SCHOOL CPR AND AED CLASSES THAT SATISFY THE FLORIDA HOPE REQUIREMENTS
high School cPR and AED Training
High School CPR and AED Training became mandatory in the state of Florida on July 1, 2021. Florida HB 157 requires that school districts “provide basic training in First Aid, including CPR, for all students in grade 9 and grade 11. Instruction in the use of CPR must be based on a one-hour, nationally recognized program that uses the most current evidence-based emergency cardiovascular care guideline. The instruction must allow students to practice the psychomotor skills associated with performing CPR and use an automated external defibrillator.
This means that high school Freshman and Juniors in Florida must learn and demonstrate CPR and AED use in a hands-on setting.
As CPR instructors, authorized by both the American Heart Association and the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI), we can provide this life-saving training. We can bring up to 30 adult mannequins and up to 30 infant mannequins to maintain appropriate student-to-mannequin ratios. This helps keep the class moving along. It also maximizes each student’s opportunity to practice the psychomotor skills required to perform CPR correctly. Additionally, we bring multiple AED training units from various manufacturers, to provide wide exposure to operating different manufacturers’ devices. This is especially helpful since AEDs can look so different from one another. Exposure to multiple models can increase a user’s confidence in properly using an AED.
We are happy to travel to and work with any high school in Florida, public or private. Our course satisfies this HOPE requirement for Florida high school students.
We can issue actual certification cards, or for a lower cost, simply provide the training without issuing certifications.
