During this course health care providers will learn a systematic approach to pediatric assessment and delivery of emergency care using AHA standards. Upon completion, the student will recognize the pediatric patient at risk of cardiopulmonary arrest and will demonstrate the cognitive and psychomotor skills necessary for resuscitating the pediatric patient in respiratory distress or failure, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest.  

  • HeartCode PALS Part 1. Upon successful completion of the online portion, including the written exam, students receive a Part 1 certificate of completion, which must be presented for parts 2 and 3.
  • Part 2*, a hands-on skills practice session with an AHA PALS Instructor or using a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system
  • Part 3*, a skills test with an AHA PALS Instructor or using a VAM system

*Parts 2 and 3 should be completed in one “skills practice and testing” session.

The Part 2 & 3 practice and testing session will be completed on your registered date and time.  Part 1 must be completed prior to your registered date and time.
