    Community/School CPR training curriculum


    The 2014-2015 school year marks the first year the CPR in schools law (120B.236) goes into effect. This law requires that all Minnesota students between 7th and 12th grade receive CPR and AED training at least once before they graduate. Training can occur in as little as 30 minutes with compression-only CPR or include a full certification class. Compression-only CPR can be taught by anyone including local firefighters, police officers or Heart Safe Community group volunteers.

    Allina Health Heart Safe is committed to assist schools with fulfilling this law by:

    • loaning out equipment
    • helping set up trainings (large group or classroom)
    • sharing free curriculums
    • linking schools with local community partners
