Class Schedule

Center for Simulation and Research 

 

These AHA courses are open to all healthcare providers and students who need this certification.

 

If you are a CCHMC employee and considered CORE, the institution will waive course fees.  For Non-CORE employees, you may take the course and pay with credit card or have the fees cross charged to your primary department.

 

What is CORE?
CORE consist of CCHMC employees who are a part of the Code Team or work in the PICU/CICU/Periop/ED. Locations where a code team does not respond that you might be expected to manage a patient while waiting for 9-1-1, i.e. Urgent Cares.

 

If you are unsure if your department falls under CORE please contact Simulation Center before registering.

**Learners are to only be enrolled in one AHA route, either a traditional AHA class at the Simulation Center or through RQI.  If a learner is sign up for a traditional PALS/ACLS class at the Sim Center while being enrolled in RQI, their department will be charged for the course at the Sim Center**

 

**Starting on August 23rd, 2020 all learners will be required to wear eye protection while in the simulation lab. Please remember to bring your eye wear protection with you to class**

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 healthcare professional 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 link 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. **These PALS courses are for internal CCHMC employees only**
