Pediatric Advanced Cardiac Life Support (PALS) New Provider class consists of 8 hours of classroom lecture, simulated cases and a written tests consisting of multiple-choice questions. Short breaks are included. A 30-minute lunch on your own is in addition to the 8-hours of class. This meets or exceeds the minimum standard for AHA New Provider course. This is not a basic CPR class.
A BLS add-on is available and will give you a BLS healthcare Provider card in addition to your primary ACLS or PALS card. It does require that you complete the BLS part 1 online portion. The online keycode and directions are included. The BLS check-off will be included on the same day you take the primary ACLS or PALS course. You must bring your online BLS completion certificate to class in order to be checked off on the BLS skills. This is an easy way to get both cards at the same time!
