PALS Certification Programs
The goal of Pediatric Advanced Life Support is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. PALS is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) - American Heart Association®
Instructor-Led Classes: Initial $249.99; Recertification $129.99; add optional BLS recertification for $29.99
Three Ways to Earn American Heart Association® PALS Certification
PALS certification can be earned in 3 formats to meet the needs of students. All formats include the same learning objectives and result in the same American Heart Association® course completion card and certification.
Traditional Classroom PALS Courses
In Instructor-Led PALS Courses Instructors deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor skills practice and testing in a classroom setting. Everything is completed in one class with this format. Students do not need to complete an online course prior to attending Instructor-led courses.
Blended-Learning Online PALS Courses
Blended Learning "HeartCode® PALS" includes a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes the cognitive portion of the course online in a self-directed manner, and then completes a shortened in person hands-on skills and testing session at our Education Center.
Update and Recertification PALS Courses
PALS Accelerated Recertification courses are for providers who have been previously certified in PALS. The Accelerated course meets the same educational objectives as all of our PALS programs, but is shorter and very fast paced.
Why Choose Twin Training?
Our instructors use proven adult education strategies including video-supplemented lessons, and scenario-based learning. Because of this, our students are able to learn the core competencies of emergency care in an engaging learning environment that does not feel like another grueling continuing education course. Say goodbye to pointless and boring CE, and step into a learning environment that will prepare you to manage emergencies.
Training and proficiency in basic ECG interpretation and cardiovascular pharmacology is required prior to attending PALS. While ECG interpretation and key PALS medications are reviewed in class, students who do not come to class with a basic understanding of these concepts may struggle. All participants must possess professional-level Basic Life Support certification prior to attending PALS.
Course content follows the American Heart Association & American Academy of Pediatrics PALS curriculum for professional healthcare providers and includes: pediatric cardiac arrest, respiratory distress, cardiac dysrhythmias, and more.
