Section 527.800 Training
a) Physical fitness facility staff shall be trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of an AED according to Sections 525.300 and 525.400 of the Automated External Defibrillator Code. The facility shall have at least one trained AED user on staff during staffed business hours, and also shall ensure that appropriate numbers of facility staff and applicable supervisors are trained to avoid lapses in compliance with this Part.
b) Each member of the facility staff shall be trained concerning the location of the AED and the requirements of the facility's medical emergency plan. Third party operators and authorized users of the facility shall also be informed, by postings or other notifications, of the location of the AED and of the emergency plan.
c) The facility staff shall take reasonable measures to ensure that the AED is operated only by trained AED users for the intended purposes of the AED. This provision shall not be construed to prohibit the use of the AED by others in a medical emergency requiring the use of the AED.
d) Any non-employee coach, non-employee instructor, non-employee judge, non-employee referee, or other similarly situated non-employee anticipated rescuer who uses a physical fitness facility in conjunction with the supervision of physical fitness activities is encouraged to complete a course of instruction that would qualify such a person as a trained AED user, as defined in Section 10 of the Automated External Defibrillator Act and Section 527.100 of this Part.
