PALS Class Requirements
(Pediatric Advanced Life Support)

*Please carefully review this list of mandatory class requirements
*After reviewing this list, click on the link on the bottom of this page to complete registration
*Please note - certification cards will not be issued if class requirements are not met

REQUIRED for both PALS initial / full classes and PALS renewals:
1) A current AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers certification card to bring to class
  • Student must present a current BLS card at the time of class
  • Only BLS cards issued by American Heart Association (AHA) will be accepted
  • Card must still be current (not expired) on the day of class

2) A current AHA (2011 version) PALS Provider Manual
  • Must be the current (2011) version
  • Must be by the American Heart Association (AHA)
  • Manuals may be borrowed or purchased from us or another distributor

3) Pretest completed prior to class and bring printout of results
  • Students will find instructions on how to access the pretest / precourse assessment in
    the 2011 version of the AHA's PALS Provider Manual
  • Once completed, the pretest results must be printed out and brought to class

4) Review the "Core Cases" in the PALS Provider Manual
  • PALS maybe difficult to pass without studying the material prior to the class
  • Once you have registered and paid for a PALS course with us, we will e-mail you an
    PALS study guide, which helps students to know what areas need to be focused on
    while preparing for class

5) Cardiac rhythm recognition
  • PALS students are expected to be familiar with cardiac rhythm reading, and able to
    identify the following rhythms: NSR, SB, ST, SVT, VF, VT, PEA, and asystole. PALS
    students are not expected to interpret a 12 lead EKG.
  • PALS class DOES NOT TEACH cardiac rhythm interpretation - PALS students who
    cannot identify these listed rhythms will have a very difficult time passing the PALS class
  • If you do not know the rhythms, or need help identifying the rhythms required for PALS,  
    we strongly suggest attending a rhythm interpretation class prior to PALS - Click here
    to register for our Basic EKG Rhythm Interpretation & Pharmacology (ACLS
    prep) - it is a 4 hour course at our Conway Rd location, held every other Sunday 1pm-
    5pm (beginning 11/06/11). Though the basic rhythm course is geared more toward
    adults, it will benefit PALS students with recognition of heart rhythms that might be
    seen in any adult or child.

6) Renewal students only - current AHA PALS certification card to bring to class
  • Student must present a current PALS card at the time of class
  • Only PALS cards issued by American Heart Association (AHA) will be accepted
  • Card must still be current (not expired) on the day of class
  • If PALS card is expired, student must take the full course (AHA requirement)
