I've had many CPR classes, as I've been certified for eight years. This class was by far my favorite! Joe was professional but also kept the session interesting. He also shared some very important facts that I did not know. I'm very happy I was referred to him!

I am the Regional Manager of a Children's Learning Academy in Pittsburgh and we are SO thankful to have found Rich & Safeguard CPR Training Services. For years we struggled with finding a reasonably priced, reliable, frankly appropriate First Aid & CPR Service for our employees. We muddled through different companies in the area who were unprofessional and then the big companies like Red Cross were WAY too expensive to use when training a large group of teachers & staff. Safeguard CPR Training Services is not only fairly priced though. Rich is incredibly professional and accommodating! We have used him for a large group training (over 40 people) where he came to one of our centers, as well as a smaller group of only a couple. Both times he was flexible with us and any glitches that may have come along the way. I can send Rich a quick email or give him a call and I hear back from him quickly. Now with DHS requirements, our company plans to continue to use Rich for the foreseeable future in order to be sure our teachers & staff are correctly, professionally, and reliably trained in CPR & First Aid!

Victor was extremely professional and on time to our teaching. He traveled to meet me in my home to teach me CPR and AED Training. He walked me and a friend through all the steps, and he ensured that we felt comfortable in performing CPR on the mannequin. Victor was very thorough and knowledgable!! I would highly recommend his services!

Sharon was amazing at introducing us to the steps for first aid and CPR and teaching us the technique for performing CPR and using an AED. I felt very prepared to respond in an emergency after attending the class with her. The only suggestion I'd have would be to spend a bit more time on the different kinds of injuries that we might face as it was a lot of information all at once - but it was also after lunch and toward the end of the day, so I get that everyone was tired!

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.
