Registration is required.

The purpose of the American Red Cross/YNHH CEMS Hands-Only CPR course is to teach untrained bystanders how to perform hands-only CPR. Having more citizen bystanders trained in this simple skill can help save lives by putting more cardiac arrest victims within a few steps of lifesaving assistance.

 The primary training method that teaches the hands-only technique is a skill session that lasts approximately 30 minutes. Participants learn how to check for consciousness, call 911 (or the local emergency number), and give continuous chest compressions. CPR training certification is not provided through this course.
