If taught properly, each scout should know that the most qualified person
should administer CPR. But when all fails, I would perfer that a 60 lb.
scout try CPR on me than have no one at all do it.
I hold both Red Cross Adult CPR and AHA Adult/Child/Infant certificats. All
members of my troop hold the later. And IMO they are more than qualifed to
give Child/Infant CPR.
It is a good habbit to get the scouts certified every year. If we do this,
they may continue to renew the certification each year. If we do not start
the habbit, who will?
The sooner we teach and start the habbit, the better. I do not care who
certifieds them. One may be better, but lets not start dictateing what
agecies BSA units must deal with, just educate them on the benifits of each.
