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 includes eLearning, online scenarios and a written test. The second part takes place in person at the Center for Simulation and Research on the Oak Campus 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.
Note: There is no longer a distinction between the initial PALS or ACLS certification and the renewal course.
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 automatically included in your 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 Combo dates are below. Please continue to check the site for these dates to be opened. **These Combo courses are for internal CCHMC employees only**
