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.  

What is a boot camp class?

Fitness boot camps are a heart-pounding way to boost your fitness level. Boot camps are led by a fitness instructor and are based on the concept of military boot camps — intensive workout programs to get new recruits into shape, quickly. Fitness boot camps encourage camaraderie, and the group momentum helps participants get through fast-paced intervals of cardio, isometric training, strength training and endurance drills. Classes may range anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and usually meet multiple days per week. Boot camps often run a specific duration of time, say four to six weeks, which creates a team-like environment for class members. Other boot camps run year-round and students purchase package pricing for classes, similar to subscriptions that allow them a set amount of classes per week or per month.

Boot camps can be held indoors at a gym, outdoors in a park or on a beach, in a backyard — anywhere there’s room for running, jumping and sweating. Some instructors also provide DVD and online boot camps. You can also find boot camps tailored to your heart’s desire, such as bikini boot camp, or boot camps for new mothers. Boot camps offer an intense workout and are usually led by energetic instructors pushing you to do your best, but unlike military boot camp drill sergeants, fitness boot camp instructors typically don’t use intimidation or punishment to spur you on. Check with your doctor before starting a boot camp if you have health concerns, and always let your instructor know ahead of time if you have injuries.

What do you learn in a first aid course?

First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

  • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
  • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
  • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
  • First-, second- and third-degree burns
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Bites and stings
  • Hypothermia or frostbite
  • Shock and seizures

 

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..

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.

How long is your CPR certification good for?

In general, CPR training sessions and certifications are good for two years. After that, you must recertify to ensure you are up to date on the latest information and techniques. CPR is a lifesaving skill for a community member, employee or healthcare provider to know, as it enables you to respond appropriately if someone goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. In a CPR training, students learn compression techniques to keep blood flowing to the body’s organs if a person’s heart has suddenly stopped or they have stopped breathing. This action can keep a person alive until an emergency responder can arrive on the scene and can effectively save a life.

The American Red Cross explains that re-certification is important, because people start to forget information just a few months after taking a training. The American Red Cross recommends you keep your skills fresh by reviewing free, online materials or downloading their free, mobile app to keep abreast of CPR information and news. Re-certification courses are shorter than first-time CPR training. Your renewed CPR certification will be good for another two years.

How much does it cost to get CPR and first aid certified?

First aid and CPR trainings are available to individuals who want to learn how to respond in case of an emergency and for healthcare providers who need to renew their certification. Typically, CPR certifications are current for two years. Here are some examples of average CPR and first aid training costs:

  • Open enrollment training: $45 for an in-person American Heart Association Basic Life Support Healthcare Provider CPR Training and Certification.
    • Additional $15 for online or hard copy student manual.
  • Online trainings: $45 for the American Safety and Health Institute Blended First Aid training.
    • The student will still be required to meet a CPR trainer in person to receive their final certification.
  • Worksite trainings:
    • $35: per employee for basic ASHI CPR AED training course (focus on CPR, 2-hour course).
      • $280: Minimum fee for an instructor to appear (at least 8 students or minimum fee).
    • $45: Per employee for an ASHI First Aid CPR AED training course (includes response strategies for most emergencies, 4-hour course).
      • $360: Minimum fee for an instructor to appear (at least 8 students or minimum fee).
  • Class extensions: Pricing varies depending on the additional emergency training requested. For example, for the ASHI First Aid AED CPR training course cited above, the host company might charge an additional:
    • $5: Per student for infant CPR training.
    • $15: Per student for oxygen administration training (add 30 minutes).
    • $15: Per student for bloodborne pathogen training (add 30 minutes).
  • Materials: CPR and first aid training courses may have additional fees for hard copies of manuals. Example of additional materials costs:
    • $10: Per hard copy of class manual (otherwise available online) for First Aid AED CPR group trainings.

How much is a boot camp?

The cost of fitness boot camps depends on how often you go, the package you are purchasing (or if you are paying a drop-in fee), the location of the bootcamp, the equipment the instructors provide, and the background and reputation of the instructor. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living typically have lower rates for boot camp services than big cities and regions with a higher cost of living. If you’re paying per class on a drop-in basis, expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $25 or more, depending on the region and the instructor. When you purchase a package of classes, typically the more you buy at one time, the cheaper each class is. The same boot camp class might be $20 for a drop-in student, $15 for a student who pays for 10 classes per month, and $10 for a student who pays for 30 classes a month. Studio space can also affect costs, so if your boot camp takes place in a high-end gym with top-of-the-line equipment, the prices will likely be higher than a class that meets in an outdoor space with limited or no equipment. Shop around to find the right type of boot camp class and the right instructor for you.

I engaged Rodney as a trainer during a three month stay in the US at the start of the year. He certainly proved to be very knowledgable about all areas of health and fitness including nutrition, correct stretching techniques, physiology and exercises for specific goals. He trained me at age 56 years as well as my niece aged 15 years and was successful in helping us both reach for our goals. I would recommend him without hesitation and wish I could find a trainer with his skill set here in the UK.

Started training with Rodney for muscle strength and toning. He is a great guy and approachable, with other trainers I felt my questions were stupid or my goals were not attainable. He's informative, answers questions and pushes in a way that makes you want to finish strong. My results have been very noticeable to my family/friends and coworkers. So pleased and excited to be on this journey to a better looking and healthy me!

I have been training with Ryan three times a week, for the past three weeks, and for one hour. He is the best trainer I’ve ever had because he really focuses on my weaknesses, my form (to correct me on the proper form of the exercise), and what exercises work well for me even with injuries I received in the past. On top of that, I had a c-section a year (13 months ago to be exact), and I’m already seeing results! My stomach drastically started dissappearing and I no longer have rolls on my back - after only three weeks! I plan on training with him for a while - even when I get pregnant again!

Rob is more than a trainer. He is a personal advisor on fitness and combines this with his knowledge of diet and lifestyle choices to help an individual fulfill their individual goals and potential. In combination with this, I strongly recommend his relaxing massage experience for the well being of your body. A complete package at a fair price for anyone wishing to improve their physical body and make lifestyle changes. My first experience with a personal trainer, and I strongly recommend his expertise and guidance to anyone! :)

Ryan is an excellent trainer, very patient, extremely attentive and an easy going person to work with. This was my first experience with a professional trainer and I must say that I have seen and felt changes in my physique in as little as 1 month because Ryan makes sure to make all your workouts challenging yet enjoyable so you don't get bored. You actually feel like you had a thorough workout even hours after you complete your session with Ryan. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone and everyone that is looking to transform their mind and body!

This was the worst experience I have ever had!!! First of all don’t get me started on the app. It is the worst one I have ever dealt with. I chose my personal trainer and got her schedule confirmed and they changed me around so many times trying to also put me with different trainers that I did not care for that it was just ridiculous. In four days I went back-and-forth with changes and app problems. In trying to get me to stay with them and not to refund my money which I paid $204 upfront, they again confirmed that the trainer I wanted had the schedule I preferred and needed based on my work schedule but that was not the case. As soon as I said I would give them another chance the drama of rescheduling and everything started again to where the trainer told me that she was confused and did not know what was going on. So that was not a good sign for me and after four days of the same thing I had enough! In those four days the owner or whoever the person is that answers the phone and text people was very rude and condescending to me and made me feel like I was the one who had created all the problems when it was her and her staff that had done so not me. That is not the way you treat customers especially new ones. I even let them know about the problems with the app and they care nothing about that. I have a new iPhone and have no Issues with any other apps so I put it back on them. I kept saying to them this should not be this hard. Meanwhile while I was waiting for my refund I found not only the best trainer ever but also he stayed to the schedule and I’ve already worked out twice. Do with this review what you want but trust me if I were you I would stay away from this group.

Three weeks in and Im starting to see a difference and improvement. Thank you Rodney!

It was my very first class and I hadn’t been doing exercises for more than 3 months and Patricia was very easy pase with me. Once I felt I could not continue she took her time to sit me down & she reminded me to not give up because It’s been a while since I did exercises. It’s a very clean place everyone is very nice to each other and the trainers are focused on their people.

Rodney is amazing! I work as a dentist in the area and training with Rodney has helped me meet my fitness goals as well relieve some of my lower back pain with all the stretching he recommends and does throughout the workouts. It’s only been a week but I’ve lost 5 pounds and with his help I can’t wait to lose more. He comes to my complex gym and is very professional and no nonsense. He gives you his undivided attention and expects yours as well. He’s also available through text and checks up on me to make sure I’m sticking to my diet and sends me motivation as well. I would def recommend Rodney to anyone who is seeking to change their life for the better and wants to meet their fitness goals now and not wait any longer. Thanks Rodney!
