North Dakota CPR

Be CPR Smart Button

The American Heart Association is working to assure that all students are trained in life-saving CPR before they graduate from high school, creating our next generation of lifesavers. 

Thanks to the work of our advocates and volunteers the 63rd Legislative Assembly in ND passed Senate Bill #2238 that provides funding to all private and public high schools that train students in CPR.  

Known for its research and science, the American Heart Association Science Advisory released a statement in January 2011 entitled “Secondary Students should be required to receive CPR training”
