Event Details

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) with Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification

(Two-Day Provider course)

The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course uses a series of hands-on skill stations and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, high-quality basic life support skills, advanced life support treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.

Our certified PALS instructors are a combination of nurses, physicians and respiratory therapists with backgrounds in pediatric emergency and critical care.

Our course provides two distinct credentials to participants who successfully complete all components of the course:

  1. Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSFC) Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification, and
