I have been going to Jeremy at Alert for 6 years now. He has provided the CPR and first aid instruction and renewal for my work. He worked me through all the updates for the upcoming year, and took the time to answer questions about anything I needed. Jeremy is extremely knowledgable and clearly takes his livelihood seriously, but without putting you to sleep. I did have to wait a couple weeks to get into a class as he was booked out, but other than that I highly recommend using him for any safety certifications you might need!

This was by far the least boring CPR/BLS training I have ever had! Norman presents material in a way that keeps your interest, makes you laugh and it sticks in your head! Thanks for the quick pace and interactive style. Loved it!

Christian was able to help me when I needed my pediatric CPR certficate for my new daycare job in Hayden--ASAP! He was really easy going and the class was lots of fun and informative (& serious as needed for the subject matter). I would definitely recommend St. Michael Consulting for CPR/ First Aid training.

Agatha does such an awesome job for our office! We have 48 employees and it would be a nightmare to try and coordinate doing our CPR and First Aid certification at a dental meeting. Having Agatha come to our office and do our CPR and First Aid certification annually is the best way to go because she comes when it's convenient to our schedule which is much more efficient than going to a conference. Plus, it's significantly cheaper than flying 48 people to a conference. Agatha has made the whole process so much more efficient and cost effective. I'd recommend using Agatha for your CPR and First Aid certification needs!

Jonell, was easy to set something up with. She was willing to teach just me so it took much less time than a traditional 3-4 hour class. I would recommend her services to others.

Elite Medical Solutions

New To Thumbtack


    We at Elite love what we do. We instruct the latest AHA techniques, use the newest equipment, and make sure every student leaves feeling confident about the material they have learned. Because we are REAL American Heart Association Instructors, our cards are accredited and provide funding to further the research and development of life saving tools and techniques. We use a student friendly environment as a foundation for core life saving instruction. We feel that the AHA has stood out over the years as the premier provider of BLS classes and want everyone to have the opportunity to see the difference. Our equipment is some of the coolest we've ever seen. The electronic monitoring manikins give immediate feedback to the student and helps aid in working with students who need a little encouragement. The AED Trainers are user friendly, and we have A/V equipment to accommodate any class size. The instructors at Elite are younger, highly motivating guys with passion for teaching. We work hard to develop classes specifically tailored for your profession, employee demographic, and class capacity. We maximize everything while kicking out the old stereotypes about the "boring videos" and monotone lecturing. You really will see an Elite difference.

    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.
