New Jersey Requires Students To Get CPR Lessons
BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey high school students will be required to have CPR training starting this year.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno signed a law Wednesday requiring the lesson for all public and charter school students in ninth through 12th grades. Guadagno is serving as acting governor with Gov. Chris Christie out of the state.
It takes effect in the coming school year.
Students will be required to have lessons in both CPR and using external defibrillators but they will not have to be certified.
The measure breezed through both chambers of the state Legislature earlier this year.
