Important Notice: This course requires the student to physically demonstrate basic and advance lifesaving skills in both learning and testing stations. Students who are currently injured and/or have a medical condition in which physical activity could result in further harm to their health are asked to first consult with their physician prior to attending this course to see if it is safe to participate in the course.

++The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Renewal course is intended for the renewing PALS provider and builds upon the foundation of lifesaving BLS for Healthcare Provider skills and emphasizes the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care. PALS also covers airway management, arrhythmia identification and management, and related pharmacologic intervention. All participants are required to present a current AHA PALS card at the time of the course. Students who do not present a current AHA PALS card may proceed into the course but must sign an AHA Protocol form indicating they understand they will not be allowed the option to remediate any testing portion of the course which includes the written exam and skills testing for BLS, Airway Management and Megacode.

Significant precourse preparation is essential to the course success, including proficiency in basic life support, and cardiac rhythm identification. To successfully complete this course, the student must pass an online exam with a score of 84% or higher as well as successfully demonstrate the following physical skills: an adult basic life support skills test, airway management test, and two Megacode testing scenarios as either a team leader or team member.
