ACLS & PALS Training

Free Workforce Training

This training will provide certification in Pediatric Advance Life Support and / or Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Students may register for either training or both trainings.

The PALS Provider Course aims to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by preparing healthcare providers to effectively recognize and intervene in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using high‐performance team dynamics and high‐quality individual skills. The course includes a series of case scenario practices with simulations that reinforce important concepts.

This one-day ACLS course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC). For healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies and for personnel in emergency response.

**Seats are limited. Applicants must provide proof of advanced practice practitioner, nurse, paramedic, respiratory therapist license upon application. **
