My wife and I were looking to get some infant CPR training after a scare with a choking baby. Munoz CPR was scheduled on a Thursday evening to come out on the following Saturday. They showed up to our house, the price was fair, the training is as they say priceless. I would recommend this course for any one that will be around babies and kids.

This was my first time doing CPR training and I can honestly say I had a blast! I've always heard how boring these trainings can be but Aaron was entertaining! Aaron has a passion for what he does. His training was easy to understand and the hands-on training was very thorough. I like how he also helped me understand how I may also react when being put in a position to save a life. When it came to the location, he went above and beyond to make it convenient and accessible. Not to mention, he is really consistent with follow-ups. After his training, I feel confident in being able to perform well in an emergency situation.

I run a Children's Day Care and with the limited time that I have, I appreciated Mr. Calderon making a house call and teaching the CPR class to my staff and myself at my home. Mr. Calderon is not only very efficient in his teachings but made sure we were all on the same page and felt comfortable performing it on our own. I highly recommend Mr. Calderon to anyone looking to learn CPR, you won't regret it.

Ron was our Safety Coordinator at the Park District of Oak Park and directly responsible for our Risk Management program. As such he not only coordinated but also often taught CPR, First Aid and AED trainings. His trainings were well organized, engaging and relatable for the attendees. He knows the material inside and out and affords the trainees a great learning experience.

My mother and I signed up for a Life Spark CPR class. I received a two year certification for CPR and First Aid which I need for my tutoring business. My mother received a 2 year BLS certification which she needs for the medical field. We invited some of my friends to come too. The class was so much fun! Trisha and Kelsey were really great instructors. The best part is that they traveled to us. Ill be calling them to renew in a couple of years.

I would definitely recommend Mina to be your instructor! Mina has a great way of explaining things so that you are able to grasp the material quickly and clearly. She is hands on instructor who engages very well with her students. She encourages a revisiting instructor-student relationship, just in case you need to refresh your FA, CPR and AED skills! She also had the best quote around! Hire her!

We are a healthcare provider and, thus, we must be AHA BLS HCP re-certified every two years. We particularly appreciate the Blended Learning concept since it allows each of us to review the videos on our own schedule, as time permits. This saves time (which is money) and allows each member of the team to proceed at their own pace. You don't have to spend three hours with the entire team just watching videos (and being bored)... The actual skills portion was done in our office in about an hour and as a team. This is very important as you likely will respond as a team in a real crisis and thus you have learned how to work together and what the responsibilities and requirements of each member are. We think this is a VERY desirable and beneficial training option. Our instructor was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable, very well prepared, and very personable. She also used manikins with lighting modules that give instant feedback on how well you are performing CPR by monitoring your rate and depth of compressions. This, along with the fact that the manikins are extremely life-like, greatly increases the learning experience and immediately lets you know when you are not doing it optimally. Our office uses the Philips HeartStart AED and our instructor used a trainer for this specific model which was good since we could drill on the exact same model we would use in an emergency. While she was reviewing our AED, she discovered that the pads for it had expired some time ago. We didn't even know that AED pads COULD expire... Good thing she discovered this before we had to actually use it! We were extremely pleased and will definitely use them again. Highly recommended!

The instructor was awesome! He spent time to make sure I understood the material and provided me with strong one on one instruction! I took this class because I needed a CPR and First Aid certification for work-this company used OSHA approved certs that were virtually identical to other classes. The difference was that the class was far superior to any AHA or Red Cross course I had ever taken before. Definitely a better program! Nice work and thank you!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

How do you get your first aid certificate?

To get your first aid certificate, you must take a first aid training course designed for certification. Certified training professionals offer courses to employers, schools or other groups. For an in-person training, you may go to a training location such as a Red Cross classroom, or a professional first aid and CPR trainer can come to you or your office. Most first aid training courses take three to five hours or more, which prepares you to take the first aid certification test. To boost your chances, you can take online practice tests or review study guides. Once you pass the first aid exam, an official digital certificate is emailed to you. You can also have a wallet card or printed certificate sent to you.

What can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations.
