PALS Classroom course (in person)
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider course is designed for pediatricians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, emergency physicians, and other healthcare providers who care for children and infants.
The PALS Provider course provides the knowledge and skills needed to recognize infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest, strategies needed to prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children, and the skills needed to resuscitate and stabilize infants and children in respiratory failure, shock, or cardiopulmonary arrest.
The PALS Certification class is offered as a popular extended one day class or traditional two day class, depending on student preference. Your testing schedule will be arranged on the day of your class.
The PALS Renewal or Update class is offered as a one day class for students who hold a current AHA PALS Provider card.
ECG is recommended for first time PALS students. Our ECG Course provides students with confidence in identifying various heart rhythms and understanding treatments associated with different arrhythmias. If your license or background has not provided you with ECG training, or if you need to review and expand your knowledge, we suggest enrolling in the ECG Course prior to taking PALS for successful completion.
Students will master their PALS skills through a combination of hands-on practice and video-aided instruction with instructor guidance.
Continuing education (CE) credits available. For more information, visit our About Us page.
