Per Indiana code 20-28-5-3, all Indiana teaching license applicants (including teaching license renewal applicants) must successfully complete CPR/AED and Heimlich maneuver (choking victim) training prior to being issued a teaching license. See below for requirements listed on the DOE web site:
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation that includes a test demonstration on a mannequin
- Removing a foreign body causing an obstruction in an airway, and the Heimlich Maneuver
- Beginning July 1, 2011, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
- Hold a valid certification in each of these procedures from either the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association or other providers as approved by the department
An initial teaching license is the first license issued to an applicant, regardless of content area or setting. Effective July 1, 2012, the requirements above must be met for all license and permit renewals. Applicants for initial licensure of any type and applicants for all renewals must show proof of valid CPR/AED/Heimlich certification.
