CPR certification is required for all teacher license applications and renewals.
Since July 1, 2012, licensing in the state of Indiana includes an applicant having current certification in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. This can be completed through the American Heart Association or through the American Red Cross, as well as other sources listed on the DOE website. https://www.doe.in.gov/licensing/cpr-heimlich-maneuver-aed-certification.
Teacher candidates assume all cost of their CPR certification. During the pandemic it has been more difficult to obtain this certification, so we recommend doing this before the end of senior year. The certification is good for two years.
