Class Schedule

Center for Simulation and Research

 

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 hybrid 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, PALS algorithum pocket card, and access key will be emailed to participants upon registration in the confirmation email.  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 documentation of completing the online module to participate in the skills testing portion and to receive the PALS certification card.  

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses given by Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center present information and skills training needed for the management of serious cardiac emergencies and arrest in the adult patient.  Small group teaching is empahsized, and use of the human patient simulator is included.

We offer ACLS using a hybrid 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 & Research on the Oak Campus of Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Note: There is no longer a distinction between the initial ACLS certification and the renewal course.

The online module instructions ACLS algorithum pocket card, and access key will be emailed to participants upon registration in the confirmation email.  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 documentation of completion of the online module in order to participate in the skills testing session and to receive their ACLS certification card.

The Ohio Paramedic Refresher Training Program is based on the National EMS Education Standards and standards adopted in rule by the EMS Board.

The didactic portion of the Ohio PARAMEDIC Refresher Training Program may be taught through online or distance learning formats in accordance with OAC 4765-7-11, however cognitive and psychomotor testing shall be conducted in a traditional classroom environment.
