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.

Reviews for Orlando trainers
Christine H.
Alyssa is fantastic. Her interview and informational session was extremely thorough. She answered all of our questions and is extremely knowledgeable with the type of training that we prefer. She has been punctual, responsive, upbeat, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her as a trainer. If you are a female that enjoys weight training or want to get into weight training, I feel that there is not a better option than Alyssa. She makes weight training approachable and has such a refreshing attitude.

I started training with Melissa 2 weeks ago and I would not have wanted to train with anyone else. She is down to earth, professional, responds to all my messages, questions, concerns etc. Absolutely LOVE her personality, she is funny, makes training a fun experience, makes me feel so comfortable. I look forward to training EVERY TIME!
Christine H.
While we elected not to use them as a personal trainer, the decision was based purely on location logistics. We live and work much further than ideal for training with them. However, they were very responsive and met with us for a good introduction to their program and training. Love their use of technology to keep accountability.

Training with Melissa has literally been the best decision I made since I moved to Orlando. She is everything I was looking for in a trainer. From the first conversation I had with her over the phone I knew that we would click perfectly and that she would keep me motivated when it came to my workouts. She is so easy to work with and makes you feel very comfortable during training. I couldn't have asked for a better trainer!

Melissa is an AMAZING trainer. She welcomes you into her family with open arms, she makes you feel comfortable and pushes you to work as hard as you can, while still listening to you. She offers great hospitality in terms of water, gatorade, towels and so on. You will be hard pressed to find a better one on one trainer, and that is coming from someone who has tried many personal trainers. If you are looking for a trainer, look no further than Melissa, you will not regret one minute of it.

Rap Fitness is the perfect choice for personal fitness. Phase I of my training with Rap and Jake Borton has gotten me stronger than I have ever had before and I can’t wait for Phase II. There are other trainers in the gym, but just look at the other clients he trains. There’s a sense of community within his clients that everyone is trying to improve in something and Rap, Jake, and Chris are all doing their part in making that happen. Highly recommend any of the trainers listed.

Rap is an incredible personal trainer! He is attentive, respectful, and an absolute joy to work out with! He is a crazy intelligent trainer and always makes sure that you are doing your absolute best when you are training with him. Before training with Rap, working out at the gym was confusing and I never knew what was a good workout for my body or what would be most effective but lasting. After training with him, I now go to the gym having confidence in my workout and seeing the results! I cannot say enough good things about him! Rap is passionate about what he does and I would recommend him to anyone, anywhere, anytime!

Ramon Was an Awesome Trainer from the moment we met I could tell he was the right guy for the job. He taught me the importance of posture when it comes to Excercise and I noticed its been getting a lot better he a trainer that cares about you and is focused on you making improvements he not just looking to collect your money. My favorite thing about Ramon he available outside of the training and does not mind answering questions he welcomes this so its nice to have that not all trainers are like that !

I’ve never been confident at the gym when doing anything besides cardio ,which is why I gave up on gym memberships and group fitness classes. I was tired of putting in time but never seeing results .I searched online for personal trainers in Orlando area and reached out to several . I received an immediate response from FELIPE @ FAMFIT407 . He was super professional , asked my personal goals and offered to set up a free-trial training session to further discuss my fitness objectives. It’s clear Felipe has a passion for what he does , and is both talented and creative in motivating you to step up your gains and train insane! It’s been about 5 sessions in, and I truly already feel and see a change , making me even more excited to keep working with this trainer to reach all of my fitness goals. If you are in the Orlando area and/or looking for a personal trainer, Felipe is the best option for you. He makes coming to work out enjoyable , and trains you hard. He will also spend time and teach you how to use proper supplements and set up meal plans! So Glad I found this trainer on Thumbtack and I highly recommend him , if u are looking for a new trainer and a hot comeback bod in 2020💪🏼🙌🏻😅

Rap is so kind as a trainer. I’d never sought out a trainer because they seemed too brusque and I knew that coaching style would not work for me. Rap challenges me in a way that keeps me going. I’m stronger because of him!

Easy to work with, working out with her is awesome. Not one of those trainers that forces you to do things you are uncomfortable with and very patient. Conversation was easy and honestly felt like I was working out with a friend who happens to be a trainer rather than a stranger.

He's great and has a great facility. I am continuing to work with Jake going forward for my training needs, he's very involved and interested in his clients and provides help and tips outside of the gym which is really helpful. Everyone at Fitness Xperts is super supportive, even those trainers I haven't trained with. It's a great place for anyone and I can't say enough great things about Jake and Fitness Xperts!
