Do I have to Be CPR Certified to perform CPR?

Absolutely not! Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people to think a certification is required to perform CPR, which can ultimately deter them from taking action. The Good Samaritan Law helps protect those attempting to provide assistance to those in need, at least from a liability standpoint.

We recommend getting CPR Certified and at the very least getting some knowledge of basic skills in how to perform High Quality CPR training, Y-CPR Academy offers classes every Thursday nights and Saturdays.  This class has been very popular for our Childcare Providers.
