My employer provides PALS, training however; due to scheduling conflicts it was much easier for me to just pay the money and take this on my own on a day off. After my experience with the PALS class through your company, I plan on doing this in the future when my BLS and ACLS certifications expire. I felt like I got more out of the class than I have taking them through an employer.

The American Heart Association's Pediatric Advanced Life Support course is designed for healthcare providers who direct or participate in the resuscitation of the pediatric patient. Through didactic lecture and hands on practice in simulated scenarios, providers will learn to treat children suffering from respiratory and cardiovascular emergencies.

PALS emphasizes the importance of basic life support for patient survival including the integration of effective basic life support with advanced life support interventions and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.

PALS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early management of arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating respiratory compromise; recognizing other life-threatening clinical situations and providing initial care; PALS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

This course is intended for healthcare providers with clinical responsibilities in pediatric critical care areas including nurses, physicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, physician's assistants, residents or fellows, and medical or nursing students in training.

All participants must have a current Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers certification to participate in this course. Participants may complete the Online BLS for Healthcare Providers course and complete the skills testing portion during your PALS course - simply select this option during the registration process.

Successful completion of this course results in an American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Life Support certification card which is valid for 2 years from the date of the course.

A pocket mask and 2 year American Heart Association PALS Provider certification card are included in this course. The Pediatric Advanced Life Support student manual is required for this course and is sold separately. If you already own one or have access to one before, during, and after the class, you do not need to purchase one during registration.

A certification exam is completed at the end of this program. Proficient demonstration of PALS skills and a score of 84% or higher on the written examination are required for certification. Students that do not achieve either of these will be remediated and allowed an additional attempt to test.
