Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

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 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.

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 much do Spanish tutors charge?

Nationally, the average cost for a Spanish tutor ranges from $30 to $40 per hour. The cost for a Spanish tutor can vary depending on whether you choose private instruction or group lessons. Geographic location can affect cost; tutors in expensive cities and pricier regions command higher rates than in rural areas and small towns. The experience and education of the Spanish tutor will also affect their rates. For adult education, many people learning Spanish choose to join a Spanish school with tutors who teach group classes and also offer private tutoring for students. Typically these schools charge a monthly tuition that gives students access to a set number of classes per week, with private tutoring available at an additional cost. One example of an average cost is a monthly tuition of $200, which includes five 90-minute group lessons per month. Monthly tuition can vary depending on the school and the teachers. Short-term workshops are also a way to learn Spanish. Students may work with a Spanish tutor and group of other students at their skill level for a short period of time. One example of an average price is $100 for an eight-week course, with one 60-minute group class per week.

So far so good! Our son just had his first lesson and it seemed to go really well. What I appreciate about Tim is the time he took before the first lesson to get to know about our son’s needs. He was easy to work with to find a lesson time that accommodates our busy schedule and also a way to teach the lesson remotely. I’m looking forward to this journey. Thanks Tim!

Emily is a fantastic teacher! Both my son and I have been taking lessons from Emily twice a week for a little over a month now. She is always well-prepared and her lessons are fun. My son was doing poorly with Spanish at school and was resistant to additional tutoring initially but now looks forward to our lessons! Jesse

William has been an immense help. The fluidity of his teaching method has fit very well with my unique needs. Even more, his zeal and ardor in my tutelage is just what I needed, to turn lessons into something more than just bland practice and rote learning; which was a fear I'd had when I began searching for a proper instructor. Lessons with him are definitely a staple in my routine now.

I am a music major on break for the summer. Shannon heard what i wanted from my lessons and helped create a customized lesson plan to fit my needs. He is very obviously passionate about teaching , and maintained an open dialogue such that I was able to ask questions and recieve fleshed out answers. I have had very unmotivated and non-personalized music teachers in the past and I was exstatic to find that Shannon was neither of those things.

Jesse's techniques and guidance have significanly pushed me toward meeting my personal goals as a vocalist. After only a few weeks of practicing what he teaches and attending weekly lessons, I am hitting notes I couldn't hit before, singing more comfortably, and starting to really like the sound of my voice! I'm excited to see how my voice will progress moving forward with his lessons. Would strongly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning how to sing at any level. -Jaron C.

Elizabeth is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had. Her patience and sense of humor are impecable and very conducive to learning. Her use of Quizlet to incorporate into our lessons make learning and memorizing very easy. She is fluent in both English and Spanish and understands the nuances of both languages which makes her the perfect Spanish teacher. I look forward to my weekly classes with Elizabeth!

I have been taking voice lessons from Greta for about a year now, I am so happy I found her! She is knowledgable, passionate about all genres of music, and can work with students at any level to help them accomplish their goal.

Greta has been teaching my 13 year old daughter voice lessons for over 6 months. She is a natural, enthusiastic teacher that easily puts my daughter at ease, helps her to feel confident and challenges her every lesson. Greta has great communication both with me and my daughter. She is always open to new ideas While maintaining a focus on the goals they have set. Every week i see how dedicated Greta is to my daughters growth, not just as a vocalist but as a young woman. It makes me so happy to know my daughter has another adult in her life that believes in her! It easily makes the hour drive back and forth every week worth the trip! And it should be noted Greta made the drive to see my daughter perform in her middle school play, and helped her prepare for her girls choir audition, which she she joined this fall!

I am very pleased with my decision to hire Geoff Arnold. He is very patient with me and wants me to have fun with the guitar. I receive well thought out lessons and enjoy them. The material I receive makes sense to me and I know exactly what I need to work on for the following week.. I interviewed many instructors and Geoff was hands down the best one for my style of learning.

Emily was amazing to work with! From the very first lesson, she was quickly able to find the unique qualities with my voice, think of creative techniques to improve my vocal abilities, and helped me work on solo pieces of my own that would fit my particular range. I've discussed with multiple Voice Instructors that I've found on Thumbtack and I found Emily to be a cut above the rest. I would highly recommend anyone to sign up through her!

I’m an adult learner trying to become a better singer for fun. It’s a bit awkward learning something new, especially at this point in my life. I haven’t tried singing very seriously since I was very young and it’s a bit nerve wracking to try and get better after all these years. Not only is Emily a great teacher, but she made me feel immediately at ease. I would highly recommend taking lessons from her.

Zsofia is a super nice person and supportive teacher who got me started in my first singing lessons. Unfortunately, after 18 months of singing the same one vowel sound the whole time and doing only warm-ups and scales every lesson with no homework or milestones, I had to find another teacher. I wish I could've stayed with her because I really like her as a person, but I lost confidence in her teaching methods and have found another teacher whose teaching method comes with a manual and she gives me homework every week so I have measurable goals. I know every student progresses at different rates, but every teacher I interviewed after 18 months with Zsofia was shocked at how little I had been taught. When I picked Zsofia, I didn't know what to look for in a voice teacher; now I know. Be sure to set clear expectations and goals, and make sure you don't get complacent. After all, you're paying to learn, not to be friends.
