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 algorithm 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.

 

Projected PALS dates are below.  Please continue to check for these dates to be opened.

Participants are required to bring documentation of completing the online module to participate in the skills testing portion and to receive the PALS provider 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 algorithm 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.

This course meets all requirements for National Registry certification renewal. All CE hours may be used toward renewal of Ohio Paramedic Certification.

 

 

 

This combo course is intended for participants who have previously completed a PALS and ACLS class prior to attending a combo course.

 

NEW!!!

**Starting in January 2018, BLS certification is now an option in all Combo Courses.  You will need to select yes or no in your registration if you want this certification. 

 

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers to manage respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies in pediatric patients. 

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers to manage cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiac emergencies in adult patients. 

Basic Life Support (BLS) HeartCode BLS course concentrates on basic life support for infant, child, and adult using a self-directed online portion coupled with a hands on session and skills testing.

COMBO Courses (PALS, ACLS, and BLS) given at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are sponsored by the American Heart Association.  CCHMC uses a hybrid learning model.  The first part of the program is a self-directed eLearning, online scenarios and written test. The second part takes place in person at the Center for Simulation and Research for active participation.  This part of the program focuses on small group teaching, high fidelity simulation, skills, team work, debriefing, and testing specific to AHA fundamentals.

The COMBO Course is located at the Center for Simulation and Research on the Oak Campus.

Registration is open to physicians, nurses, respiratory therapist, paramedics, and other healthcare providers whose occupation directs or participates in the management of medical emergencies.

We offer PALS and 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 and Research on the Oak Campus.

The online module instructions, PALS and ACLS algorithm pocket cards, and access keys will be included in this email automatically. All pre-course work is done online through the American Heart Association website and can be accessed by logging in from any computer.
