It Happened at School….High School Students Learn CPR

Collage of HS Students Learning Infant CPR
Pictured above are students in Christine Kraai’s health class at the high school as they learned how to perform infant CPR.

Almost 200 students per semester that attend health classes held at the high school (mostly juniors and seniors, with a few sophomores and a freshman) learn how to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on adults and infants.

CPR training is a graduation requirement since 2015, and this training held at the high school exceeds that requirement; as it is an actual certification level through the American Heart Association.

This training covers adult, child, and infant CPR, use of the AED, and choking; providing 1- and 2-person CPR training, hands-only CPR training, as well as training using rescue breathing. Students were offered an optional AHA 2-year Community Certification upon the completion of the program, for a fee of $25.
