As you are aware, AB1719 goes into effect July 1, 2018 and defines "Compression-Only-CPR" as a high school graduation requirement. This new legislation will impact our 2018-19 graduating class, and graduates moving forward. With the assistance of the Marin County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency several of our high schools in Marin have conducted (or are scheduled to conduct) pilot training programs utilizing a team of EMS volunteers, and capturing some of next year's graduates.
As we prepare for the 2018-19 school year, Marin County EMS is now offering a series of "train the trainer" classes this Spring, Summer and Fall at Marin County Office of Education, available to all school staff who may be involved in providing training for students moving forward into the next school year and beyond.
