By requiring CPR training, we have put ourselves in a position to truly make a difference in someone's life. However, I feel like we need to ensure that hands-on training is involved in the process. There are several online "certifications' you can buy that are based on American Heart Association/Americal Red Cross guidelines. No hands-on takes place, and people can complete it in 30 minutes or so. This is not adequate training. AHA/ARC both require hands-on to obtain certification. It is of utmost importance to be able to demonstrate your understanding of the material and have time to practice while not in a life or death situation. Please consider adding this requirement to the guidelines.
