Must schools directly provide the CPR course as part of the Healthy Kids Act requirements?

Answer: 

Schools may accept proof that a student has completed CPR outside of school (for instance, as part of training to be a swim instructor or life guard, EMT, or babysitter). If a school or school district provides the training during the school day, the school or school district may bring in any person from the community or elsewhere who is certified to teach CPR if no one on staff has this certification.
