CPR AED First Aid class was a good refresher course, with as much discussion or questions answered, as you need. Doc Odango is knowledgeable with very good experience in the practical application of on all these techniques. The equipment was all nearly new and enough to go around to all the students (course even supplied construction quality kneepads to make doing practical exercise’s easier, nice touch Doc). AHA refresher video is dated but this refresher course will get you up to speed fast. Classroom setting at Bryant & Stratton College is another very positive reason to take this course.

Can’t say enough what an amazing experience I had with ESS. The instructor Mark really took his time and made sure we understood everything being taught. By the time I had completed my first set of training I didn’t feel like just a customer. I will definitely be back for more training in other areas. Thank you Mark & Erin y’all are truly amazing.

My experience was amazing ... I was a little intimidated at first seeing how I was the oldest in my class.. but this was my second go around I first become a CNA 1999 in California.. unlike the classes I took in Cali it was 3 months here it was 6 weeks which made me buckled down and study... but so very rewarding in the end... I would like to thank all my teachers , admin... and of course Mrs. Hatcher for everything ...and a special shout out to Mrs. Hatcher for being so sportive of me during school and especially after we graduated opening up the classroom for anyone to come back and study up on their skills while waiting to take the State Board Exam and Test and an awesome reference for me. Thank you Arleigh for all you do in empowering women to follow their dreams. Kimberly Arellano P.S. I strongly encourage anyone taken the CNA course to purchase this CNA Exam Cram it is so helpful with lots of tests and quiz where you can check and see which ones you missed and it gives you your scores the cost is 35 I got mines and Barnes and Noble.

My Company (Sargent Corporation) contact EMTA on short notice about a next day training for 12-15 people. EMTA (Al) responded and was able to accommodate our last minute training and even came to us! His training was interactive and engaging. Everyone in the class found the information useful and applicable. We highly recommend them if you are in need of any training in their areas of expertise.

I was very impressed with Mr. Criswell. He made my experience with ACLS/BLS training relaxed, informative and had great teaching skills. The price was very reasonable and I valued the fact that he was willing to come to my house. That also took pressure off, being in my own environment. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

    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 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 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.
