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 trained with Linda and I had an amazing experience. Walking into a gym was intimidating to me and starting my health and fitness journey felt overwhelming but Linda helped build my confidence and gave me guidance every step of the way. The schedule was flexible and she adjusted my training as needed due to a back injury that we discussed prior to my start of training. I highly recommend this gym. Linda and all of the staff there are knowledgeable and professional.

This review is long over due. I have been following Kelvin sometime on his social media platforms, youtube especially where he puts up Quality content. I had been getting advice from him for some time and he has never pestered me for a review but I had to give him his just due. What intrigued me the most was his band training style as im always on the go so the big gyms are a no go for me. Im a go-getter so I didn't need one on one training. I purchased a training program from him and was it awesome as it catered to my lifestyle. I greatly recommend Khpfitness if you are looking for a well rounded trainer the loves what he does!

Khpfitness and Training has taught me a great deal about training and nutrition. I didn't realize how clueless I was about calories either. Im 64 and I wish I would have known about things like this in my 30s or even 40s. Ive learned that its better to feel better not just look better. I had chronic back pain and he helped me manage it and now its barely noticeable as the months continue on. I could go on and on but I want to recommend Kelvin as an awesome coach!

Kelvin is impressive with how adaptable he is. If your schedule changes, he can adjust and set new dates immediately, and if you miss a date, will find the next closest time so that your get your money’s worth. His attitude and professionalism make training days something to look forward. I have and would recommend Kelvin to anyone of all shapes and sizes.

Derek is awesome and I had an enjoyable experience. By no fault of his i had to stop training which i really didn't want to do but life happened. He has helped more than he probably knows. I have a bad back and for me to not be in pain for the months i was working with him was amazing.I have been in pain for about 7 years i don't do medicine because i hate them so i suffer but with his help i didn't need it. I have taken his teachings and currently doing them at home. Well all the ones i can do without weights and such. I have recommended others to him because of the great stuff he does. Now some background I am a 28 year old banged up Keeper from Soccer. I have too many surgeries and other issues from playing. So for me picking someone is always a challenge because most trainers don't know how to do deal with a broken person. Derek does he doesn't care if your broken, in perfect shape or just there because you need guidance he will help you. He is great with all of his customers and the people around him from what I have seen. Again i would highly recommend him. My goal was to be healthy, not lose weight or gain muscle just be healthy and not in pain. I achieved that and i also gained muscle and lost weight as a side benefit. No amount of words can really express how glad I am that Derek responded when i was looking. If you are undecided on someone hopefully this review explains why you want to pick him. On a side note he has never asked me to refer him nor write reviews i am doing this on my own free will.
