Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) courses given by Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are sponsored by the American Heart Association. These courses present information and skills needed for management of seriously ill or injured pediatric patients.
Registrants must be physicians, nurses, paramedics or other healthcare personnel whose occupation requires managing the pediatric patient.
We offer PALS using a hyprid learning model. The majority of the learning is a self-directed online module. The skills portion will build on core concepts based on the AHA fundamentals, followed by skills testing at the Center for Simulation and Research on the Oak Campus.
Note: There is no longer a distinction between the initial PALS certification and the renewal course.
The online module instructions and access key will be included in your confirmation email upon registration. All pre-course work is done online through the American Heart Association website and can be accessed by logging in from any computer.
Participants are required to bring documention of completing the online module to participate in the skills testing portion and to receive the PALS certification card.
