CPR/AED & First Aid Training
NYS School Coaches:
Regardless of the experience or teaching certificates a person may have, State Education Law, Article (6), Section 3001b, requires that a person appointed as a coach of an interschool athletic team must hold valid first aid skills and knowledge certification (minimum of 12 hours initial training, valid for 3 4 years); and adult CPR certification (minimum of 4 hours training, valid for 2 years). Training courses are conducted by the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, National Safety Council, Emergency Care & Safety Institute, American Safety and Health Institute, NYS Department of Health (DOH) Bureau of Medical Services and New York State Education Department approved providers. First Aid and CPR certification must be approved prior to the first day of practice. In addition to the first aid certificate, all coaches of interschool teams must meet part or all of the course requirements in a pre-service and/or in-service program. Which requirements apply to the individual coach depend upon the nature of the sport to be coached and the coach’s previous experience, training, and a basic teaching certificate.
