Talking Brake Caliper Compression

Hi there guys quick question a friend of mine has a 2009 Compass and I was wondering if there is any special technique to compressing the caliper or if it is done just with a regular compressor. I work at a garage but I will be doing the job at his house so if there is something extra I need to bring I would like to know. Thanks!!

Sometimes you can pry the piston back with the pad still on with a big screw driver through the rear hole. However, I use a big C-Clamp vise grip usually. Having done all four this summer its all fairly easy.
