CPR is too important a skill not to be taught.The Red Cross or the AHA are
not the only places where CPR can be taught. Is certification the issue or
is learning the skill?
I am less concerned about my scouts being certified as I am about their
knowing how and when to use it.
If the local scout troop doesn't have the ability to teach it themselves it's
not very difficult to reach out to local hospitals, fire departments, police,
or volunteer ambulance services.
