PALS Provider and PALS Update / Renewal

The American Heart Association’s Pediatric Advanced Life Saving (PALS) class is specifically for healthcare providers who respond to life-threatening emergencies in infants and children, as well as for First Responders and other emergency personnel, including those in emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units.

PALS is an advanced form of Basic Life Support (BLS) that teaches medical professionals to use life-saving tools such as intubation, electrocardiograms, and intravenous medications. Similar to Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), PALS teaches you with how to perform these vital procedures on smaller, pediatric patients (children and infants). PALS-certified professionals will be equipped to treat children in emergency situations and to begin determining the cause of their medical crises.

 

The PALS Provider (Initial) Course typically takes 12 hours to complete, and is taught over two consecutive days in our classroom at the Melbourne Square Mall, from 8:30am to 4:30pm on the first day and from 8:30am to about 12:30pm. A pre-course assessment is required before arriving to class. Students must bring a scoring report showing a 70% or better score. The AHA also requires students to have a current PALS Provider manual. We have hardcopies available for sale in the classroom. You can purchase the textbook at the same time that you book your seat in the class.

The PALS Renewal/Update Course typically takes eight hours to complete, and is taught in one day at our classroom at the Melbourne Square Mall, from 8:30am to 4:30pm. A pre-course assessment is required before arriving to class. Students must bring a scoring report showing a 70% or better score. The AHA also requires students to have a current PALS Provider manual. We have hardcopies available for sale in the classroom.

Our PALS Instructor is Meghan Fife, a licensed Paramedic and authorized by the American Heart Association to teach BLS, ACLS and PALS.

The PALS Provider Course is designed to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by preparing healthcare providers to recognize and effectively intervene in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using team dynamics and high‐quality individual skills. The course includes a series of case scenario practices with emergency situation simulations that reinforce important concepts.

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a course completion card, valid for two years. Please contact your employer to ensure that you are selecting the correct course.
