Today, State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) announced passage of Sub. House Bill 113, which would require CPR training for high school students entering 9th grade for the first time on or after July 1, 2016.


“The legislation aims to improve the safety of our students through education and training that will last a lifetime,” Rep. Anielski said.  “Preparing our students for any emergency situation is one of the best gifts that we, as both legislators and as parents, can give our children.” 


This legislation will require students in grades 9 through 12 to receive CPR training through the use of an automated external defibrillator. Additionally, the bill ensures that students practice "hands on" training with a mannequin to learn the psycho-motor skills necessary to perform CPR.


To provide school districts with flexibility, HB 113 simply states that students must receive basic CPR training at some point in the four years they attend high school. Additionally, the bill only requires the training to last at least 30 minutes and students do not have to become CPR certified as a result of this legislation.


HB 113 was sponsored by State Representatives Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) and Nathan Manning (R-North Ridgeville) and now goes to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
