Well that depends... There are some jobs that require you to be certified in CPR. You do not need to be certified to perform CPR. If there is not a certified rescuer in the immediate vicinity, you may perform CPR. 911 operators now instruct callers on how to perform a rough version of CPR. If you do find yourself in a situation where someone needs resuscitation, call for help quickly. Call 911 and begin CPR. Check the Good Samaritan Laws in your area.
