Gilda was awesome! She just completed a Heartsaver training for a group of 8 people at my company. We all agreed that she was engaging, enthusiastic, and an expert in the course material. We particularly liked how comfortable she made us feel in asking questions throughout the training. The encouragement of open dialogue led to great discussion of real world applications to our learning. We will certainly be having her back for future trainings, as she clearly seeks to collaborate and customize her educational approach to best suit our company.

Bob McNellis with Take Action CPR was a pleasure to work with as he taught our class to effectively respond to health emergencies that may arise at our church (Community United Methodist) in Naperville. We especially liked his presentation style which included starting with the basics and moving into more complex situations where CPR/AED may be indicated. At the end of the class we ran a demonstration of an "emergency" and learned more about how to work as a team for a successful outcome. Bob's experience as a paramedic was especially useful to help us to understand how to be ready when the rescue workers get to our location. The consensus of the group was that this was the most informative and practical CPR/AED training that we had had over the years. Thanks to Bob.

Tonya was extremely flexible with our schedule which was perfect. Having her train two of our office staff was a great experience - she was thorough, knowledgeable, and we felt we really got the most out of our CPR training compared to what may have been offered elsewhere. We would definitely recommend her to any other facility looking for CPR training. You will not be disappointed.

Lorenzo was attentive to our training needs. Most of the class was getting re-certified. He brought to our attention the changes since we last took a certification class and the reasons for the changes. During the class the tornado sirens went off. He was able to pick up after the interruption and finish in time. I never thought I would ever need to use any of the training, just last week while eating dinner my husband was eating and all of a sudden he couldn't breath I seen his hand start waving and realized he couldn't speak or breath. I was able to preform a few quick blows to the middle of the back the using the Heimlich maneuver I had to repeat it to totally clear the blockage. Thank you so much for the training, I am so glad I knew what to do and had training. If I had not had training he could have died.

Working with Adriene C. Watson was a great experience for me, A Spiritually Blessed Woman who understand the art of communication. I felt relax and at ease with her as she went through the course of study. I feel that she not only prepared me with the necessary tools to save a life, but she gave me the mental confidence to take action without any hesitation.

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 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

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.
