Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – Recertification

Staying current as a PALS provider requires routine recertification every two years. This 1-day intensive refresher program covers what you need to know to pass the test, including the latest changes in the American Heart Association’s guidelines.

You will review the assessment criteria for infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest and to identify the signals and/or actions for the prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. You will also be able to demonstrate assessment and performance skills in Pediatric Advanced Life Support including for shock/respiratory failure, airway management/intubations, dysrrhythmia recognition, resuscitation, and vascular access for infants and children. There is also an optional precourse diagnostic examination available.

If you successfully complete the course you can earn 8 hours of Instructor-ledCEU credit for dentists, nurses, and paramedics, and an AHA PALS provider card good for two years.
