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.

Courtney is a great trainer. He listens to you. As a trainer he has the perfect balance of knowing when to push you past your comfort zone and when you just need a minute, and a pep talk. I almost did not go to my first session because i was conscious of my weight and how i looked, but I'm glad that I did! I need to lose 30 pounds and I am shy. Courtney made me feel comfortable and welcomed! I am now down 15 lbs because of Courtney's training and guidance! I'm looking forward to reaching my weight loss goals with Courtney's help.
Carolyn S.
Courtney is very professional, knowledge and an all around nice guy. Training faculty is low key, in a strip center and is occupied by a few trainers and their clients so it's not crowded. All types of people at various stages of working toward their fitness goals . No need to feel self aware if you're not super fit. His workouts are good, tough to push but not gonna put you in the ER! Highly recommend Courtney!

After training with Courtney for almost 3 months, I can attest to Courtney's professional knowledge, enthusiasm, and result-driven attitude. My goal is to tone, and get fitter. To that end, Courtney created a custom whole body workout for me. He guides me in working all parts of my body, arms, chest, legs, and even cardio. He pays attention to my forms closely, making sure I get the most out of my workout, and also not to get hurt. I'll definitely be training with Courtney for the foreseeable future! If you are on the fence about having a personal trainer to help you achieve your fitness goal, you owe it to yourself to at least have a trial session with Courtney!

Carly is a phenomenal trainer. I experienced amazing results from seeing her two days a week and following her recommendations for two exercise days in addition to our training sessions. My lean body mass increased, my muscle tone and definition improved significantly and my strength and endurance improved greatly through our work together. She is a knowledgeable and experienced trainer, but on top of that, she has a lovely attitude and personality. I look forward to our sessions because I know her funny stories and conversations distract me from the dread of dragging my butt to the gym! Carly is flexible in terms of time and scheduling and she will come to you! This is very important to me as it removes one more barrier from working out.

John came out to our church to teach a Pediatric CPR class for staff and volunteers. He did a great job! John made the material easy to understand and enjoyable to learn. John uses his personal experience as well as his obvious expertize to make for a more meaningful and engaging class. We were delighted with our experience, and are looking forward to our next training.

Mr. Harris is an impeccable fitness trainer. His professionalism and dedication to his clients is outstanding. I truly felt like he cared about me and the goals that I had set for myself. He always kept a positive attitude and kept me motivated. He perfected an exercise regimen and dietary plan that best suited me. I would recommend him to anyone who was ready to take control of their health and get in shape! Harris Health and Fitness is the way to go!

I'd never worked with a personal trainer before, but this has been such a great experience! Trina took the time to listen to my concerns and has created work-outs that address those concerns and more. She challenges me to work a little harder each week and I can already feel the difference in my strength and stamina after just 4 weeks. Plus, she gives excellent advice about nutrition and lifestyle changes. Having just turned 60, I'm learning that it's never too late to improve my health and be more active. Thank you, Trina.

After looking at several different personal trainers, I decided to go with Cooper. He was more than happy to meet with me beforehand. I have a knee condition that Cooper has had no problems working around. From the very first visit I liked his style. I'm rarely every sore afterwards, even though I feel like I leave it all on the floor! I truly feel like I can achieve my goals with him. He works every group of muscles in the body in every work out. 100% satisfaction!

Crystal helped me achieve my goals of how I wanted my body to look for my wedding. I gave her a short 8 weeks to help me tone my arms and abs so I could look my best in my wedding dress, and that's exactly what she did! She helped me lose 11 pounds and 2 inches from my waist in just 8 weeks. Her training includes meal plans and suggestions for supplements. She made the meal plan accommodating to my needs. She gave me the motivation and confidence I needed while working out. Before Crystal, I would just go to the gym and do cardio because I honestly did not know how to work most of the machines. She shows you how to work all the machines and has built my confidence up to where I am no longer afraid of the free weight side of the gym or what I like to call "the big girl side." Along with the meal plan she gives you a weekly calendar with what you should be doing each day which really helps keep you on track. I have kept Crystal as my personal trainer even after my wedding because she is that great!!

I’ve been working with Train at Home Atlanta (THA) since October 2015. What began as just a weight loss quest has turned into so much more. I’ve had injuries in the past, so I wanted someone to watch me and make sure not to hurt myself. THA’s approach has made this lifestyle change almost effortless. The transition has been very natural. The program they created for me started at a level appropriate for me. I noticed improvements and felt myself advancing right away. The workouts vary, which helps keep it interesting. To say their approach is holistic is just touching the surface. Yes, they have the knowledge of what exercises sculpt the body, but they also listen and adjust the plan. Guilt is never part of their strategy because it isn’t a lasting motivator. The trainers are open, honest, positive, and encouraging. I think I have been so successful because I have had to consider many factors (emotional, psychological, physical). The physical workout was just the beginning. Before working with THA, a lifestyle change seemed so daunting, so far out in the distance. I’ve made changes I never thought I would. Now I feel better, I’m cooking fresh meals, and I look forward to the workouts.
