Wonderful experience! Andre is extremely knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher. I have taken many CPR classes in the past, and his has been the best. He was very accommodating and even provided water and snacks! I would highly recommend him for future CPR classes.

Bob was professional and knowledgeable. He ran a well-organized First Aid and CPR class that lasted about 3-1/2 hours. He tailored the First Aid class to the needs of our staff, explained CPR techniques clearly and thoroughly, and responded well to questions. Great class!

I finished a BLS course with Dick Torrey of Torrey Enterprises. He is very professional and knowledgeable on the topic. The course was enjoyable and interactive. He has years of experience in the field and is able to relate this experience to topics in his teaching with real life stories and techniques. I would highly recommend him for any AHA CPR course!

Danielle came to our house for a CPR, AED and First Aid training. It was $75 each for 2 people with a certification of completion or $75 for 2 people total without the certification. Danielle did have to reschedule one time because of an ill family member, but it was no problem for us. Danielle was very professional and easy going. Taking the training with her was a pleasure and I would highly recommend working with her. The convenience of having someone come to you at the time you both set was fantastic!

I contacted Darrin on a Friday afternoon and was able to schedule him to come to our school for CPR training for 7 staff members for the following Monday night. Darrin arrived early and was set up and ready to go on time. He presented the information in a concise clear manner and alternated between talking, demonstrating technique, and having us practice on the dummies. He was well-stocked with supplies (dummies, barriers, test AED). Our certificates arrived the same night. I would definitely recommend Darrin and would definitely hire him again.

Very quick response and out of all the CPR classes I've been forced to take, this was by far the most informative and fun. I learned more in this one class than any I have taken before. The instructors know their stuff and have a strong knowledge base and real world background.

I took the CPR/AED class and also the First Aid class with Gail on two separate nights. Gail is friendly, down to earth and very knowledgeable about her field. I enjoyed her classes, her sense of humor and always felt comfortable asking questions. She also stayed in touch with me(email and by phone) to keep me up to date on her classes and help me to schedule a class with her. She has a wide range of knowledge about children, safety, and health care. I would recommend her to anyone!!

I needed to get re-certified in CPR/AED ASAP, as I realized that my certification is expiring soon. Gary contacted me quickly, and his e-mails were very informative. I finally called him and spoke regarding which class would be best for me.

Thank you so much to Derek! I'm a teacher and work at a center that serves infants-pre-k! We had a group of 11 of us who needed CPR and first aid recertification! I found Derek on here and he reached out to me and we set a date and time. It was great! He came right to our center one evening after we closed and we didn't have to pay extra for him to come to us. He came early to set up that way when we were ready to begin we could. For both first aid and CPR recertification it took about 2 hours. The entire time he kept all of us engaged in what we were doing and had a great sense of humor! It cost us $50 per person total for both first aid and CPR. We look forward to having him back again and we will be giving his info to our other center locations directors! Thank you again!!

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.  

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.

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.
