Megan is an excellent Medical Training coach.! I recently obtained my CPR/AED certification under her. The material was well explained and Megan's hands-on approach towards learning really helped the lessons stick! It is super important that these skills are learned. Who knows what kind of situation you could end up in that could result in you having to perform a lifesaving medical technique. I recommend anyone and everyone to take this class with Megan!!

I have been a medical assistant for 19 years and have taken several CPR and aed classes to keep my certification up. Working with catrina was the best class I have taken . She made it convenient for me with my busy schedule and was very informative on all of the old and new techniques. She made sure that I had it down pat before my card was issued. I was very pleased with her and would recommend my colleagues and friends that wants to know CPR which everyone should know. She has my blessing in the future of her career. .....Debra Walker

    I brought 13 employees from Shinola Detroit headquarters where I am the Facility Manager. Lieutenant Gladieux welcomed each and every one of us to the class individually and introduced himself. Each team of 2, had their own Adult Manikins, which we each took turns, finding pulse, method of measuring the chest to place our fists and begin performing CPR compression's. We also applied our Phillips Heart Start AED Pads and followed the AED process to completion. We discussed and improved our in house process, from diagnoses, and delegating tasks for assistance, calling 911, performing CPR and using AED and expediting EMS through our doors to the patient as quick as possible. Followed by infant CPR. Furthermore, we practiced exercising the Heimlich Maneuver on Adults and infant, along with discussing the history. Lieutenant Gladieux encouraged and motivated my team to jump into the training with his hands on approach, and to ask basic to advanced questions which he answered completely. Every single one of us felt comfortable during the training and confident at the end.

    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.
