Coaches Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training: Curriculum and Assessment


This training course serves as a support to the legislative coaches requirement for annual Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training. The content was developed and is accessible through the Ohio Department of Health and must be completed annually.

Course Overview

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training 

Lindsay’s Law - SB252

Senate Bill 252, known as "Lindsay’s Law" place specific requirements for coaches, athletes and parents into law and went into effect in 2017. These legislative requirements can be found in the Ohio Revised Code (ORC).

These specifics are addressed inside of:

  • ORC 3313.5310
  • ORC 3707.58
  • ORC 3707.59

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training Requirement

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.

This training will provide the interscholastic coach with all information needed to ensure compliance with the legislation as well as an annual completion certificate.
