Anyone capable of performing proper chest compressions - usually about 100 to 120/min and to a depth of at least 2 inches. The AHA states that children as young as sixth grade are capable of accurately performing CPR.
Hands-Only CPR is a valuable life-saving tool, but does not currently come with a certification card. It is also much less time-intensive to teach than traditional CPR classes. Certification CPR courses are paid events to cover the cost of obtaining the certification card from the AHA and the time it takes the trainer to teach the course.
