I've been working out with Next Up Fitness (N.U.F.) for the past 3 months with Trainer, Terrell Johnson who is a truly excellent trainer. The facility is equipped with all your necessary training equipment. Trainer, Terrell Johnson Is a great combination of tough and warm. He knows how to push you hard but not over the edge. Because of his efforts, I feel I am stronger, more flexible and confident. I have better balance, endurance and most importantly, working out has become fun. I recommend him and the Next Up Fitness training facility and staff without reservation.

Mike is an excellent trainer. His many years of real world experience doing exactly what he's teaching made a big difference. Everything he taught was hands-on. I I felt more confident in using CPR/First Aid techniques than I had after the previous training I've done. I highly recommend Mike and OnSite training. He answered all questions thoroughly and had state-of-the art training aids. He was highly professional and the training was a great value.

Robin's Nest Nursery School staff took the CPR/AED Training Course with Wojtek Szysko. It was an outstanding session!! He was an excellent instructor with great manor, humor, and knowledge. The Instruction was clear, precise, and concrete leading all of us to through understanding of the matter. The afterward practice with actual mannequins and AED equipment gave us confidence and concrete knowledge to cope better with real circumstances. I am honored to recommend Mr. Szyszko for CPR/AED training course.

    Chris Lubenetski was an excellent teacher of First Aid and CPR. He was thorough in his instruction, whether it was the information he taught, or the hands on applications of how to perform CPR for infants, children, and adults. I found the personal stories he shared to be beneficial because it provided insight into how others have responded in crisis situations. Overall, I would recommend Chris Lubenetski and Boy Scout Venturing to anyone who is looking to learn First Aid and CPR.

    Joe was a great teacher. He came to the house and made sure the whole class (3ppl) had understood the 'process of an emergency' upon completion. He joked around a bit to help keep the class fun and enjoyable. We feel knowledgeable in approaching a situation, understanding when to use CPR and how to properly give CPR. Joe went over different scenarios and situations outside of the videos to help us better understand when it would be safe or not safe to enter a situation. Overall, this was a great experience, in the comfort of my own home.

    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.
