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 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.  

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 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.

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.

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..

Mr. Kyles attention to detail and how the lessons are tailored just for my daughter using her goals as a guide, wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. Prior to lessons he sends music and assigns homework for her and does not allow her to use short cuts. Teaching each skill and the principal of practice. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher and look forward to a many lessons to come.

She seemed nice enough when I spoke to her to schedule a lesson. She said that she would send me her address but never did, and didn’t respond to my message. Also I explained to her that I couldn’t afford more than two lessons per month and she was very pushy about wanting to have weekly lessons. I understand the importance and benefits of more frequent lessons, but it’s just out of our budget right now. I had to just keep telling her that we can’t afford it, which was kind of embarrassing. I’m hoping that’s not the reason she’s ghosted me.

I've only had two 30 minute lessons so far, and the second lesson was after she went on vacation, so take this with a grain of salt. Positive: She was on time for our Skype lessons She does seem to know what she's doing, as far as exercises go Friendly Negative-ish: She has forgotten to send me the exercises and links she said she would send after the lesson on both occasions Only doing 30 minute sessions, I was hoping for someone who could quickly get a handle on what I had and what I needed, and then get me onto a concrete path for improvement. The first lesson felt less targeted than what I was hoping for, and I was very uncertain about what I was supposed to do with the exercises she eventually sent after I finally requested them. However, I wanted to give it one more try, so I booked a second lesson. When she came back, she didn't really remember what I wanted or what I was working toward, so a lot of the session time was inefficiently used. Ultimately, it may be that it's a limitation of the half-hour length, which requires laser focus and tight lesson structure, but while I now have some exercises to work on, and one in specific that might be very useful, I still don't feel like I have a clear path to my goals. If she could do something differently, I might suggest creating a lesson outline, or a handout that has the exercises she uses on it, and then she could add or delete exercises, add notes, etc, and then send it to the student at the end of the session. That way, there's a concrete structure, and more detailed instructions on how to practice after the lesson. As it is, I feel like I just need to take the exercises and vocabulary/names she mentioned and go hunting on YouTube for greater detail. Don't get me wrong, the guidance and vocabulary is invaluable, but I was hoping for a bit more structure. So, from my limited sample of two short lessons, I would say that she is probably a good teacher, very friendly, but maybe not the best choice if you need lessons delivered with surgical precision because of your financial limitations.

Mr. Irwin is a FANTASTIC teacher! I started my lessons about five months ago and I've been able to make tremendous progress because he adjusts the speed of the lessons to the student's pace. I am 54 years old and hadn't played any musical instrument since high school band. Because I still remembered the basics of reading music, we could skip over the things I already knew and go right into "real" piano music. I've also overheard his conversations with a child whose lesson was adjacent to mine, and he seems great with kids too. He truly has a gift!

Awesome from the start. I decided in my 50s that it was time to finally learn guitar. I took some lessons from another instructor, but we just didn’t jive. Tried Zach and my search is over. I learned more in the first lesson than a half dozen from the other guy. Zach’s best qualities are that he is patient and he listens to you. Great combination for a beginner. He already has me playing several chords and simple songs after two lessons. His approach to practice keeps me motivated. My frustration level decreased dramatically and I’m finally excited about learning again. Save yourself some time and give Zach a call!

John was an amazing teacher! I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn guitar. I had never picked up a guitar until I took my first lesson, so I was brand new. John was great at teaching me fundamentals and instruction you just can’t get from a book or online. He is also very flexible with his lesson schedule, so it was easy to find a date and time that worked for me.

Jiayi was just the teacher I'd been looking for. She's kind and patient, and also rigorous with high expectations. It's clear she's a wonderful musician herself, which is . She's teaching my seven-year-old daughter who is still very much a beginner, and a fairly reluctant one at that. After our first lesson, my daughter said, "I think piano lessons will be kind of fun!" So that's a win. I definitely recommend Jiayi!

Irwin gave my daughter her 1st free lesson Sat. She is 12. I sat in and watched the session. He Knew his stuff for sure. He got right to it and seemed to play right to her level of experience in playing. Jenna loved 8t and wanted me to make him her regular teacher so I got her 4 more lessons. He's very flexible in his scheduling as well. No contracts etc.

Working with Mr. Williams has been exciting. My first voice lesson went very well and I learned a lot about my voice. Mr. Williams worked with me and didn’t make me feel embarrassed when I couldn’t get something right. I look forward to many more lessons and seeing all the improvements in my voice. I would definitely recommend Dreamer Records Inspirational Gospel Studio.
