The PALS Renewal course is a shortened version of the PALS Initial course. You may register for the renewal course ONLY if your card is still valid. In order to prove the card is valid, you must arrive to the class with the original AHA PALS card that is not expired. We honor the expiration date on the card until the end of the month it is set to expire on. If your card is not valid, you will be asked to pay the remaining price difference so you may take the initial course.
AHA’s PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. PALS is a classroom, video-based, Instructor-led course that uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics.
At the end of this course, students will receive an American Heart Association PALS Provider eCard. Certification cards are valid for 2 years from date of issue.
