Online PALS Certification and Renewal
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support Course is crafted to instruct healthcare professionals who provide care for pediatric patients in emergent situations. The most common life support indication for infants and children is respiratory/pulmonary arrest, but PALS covers cardiovascular emergencies such as cardiac arrhythmia and arrest.
While all healthcare professionals who care for pediatric patients should be current with PALS life support guidelines, groups who will be most interested in the PALS course are
- Emergency Medical Services (EMTs)
- First Responders
- Physicians esp. NICU, PICU, pediatrics, trauma, emergency medicine
- Pediatrics House Staff/Interns/Residents
- Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses
- Nurse Practitioners/Doctors of Nursing Practice with a Peds practice
- Dentists who care for children
Most hospitals, medical centers, and group practices require all staff to at least have BLS certification. Any staff members caring for infants and children are often required to obtain and maintain PALS certification. Initial PALS certification is valid for two years. In order to stay current with advances in pediatric resuscitation science, certification renewal is required every two years.
We perform frequent, periodic reviews of our training materials so that they conform to the latest guidelines from the:
- American College of Cardiology
- American Heart Association
- American Red Cross
- European Resuscitation Council
- European Society of Cardiology
Pediatric Advanced Life Support is not simply ACLS for kids. It is a completely separate resuscitation approach. Infants and children experience different types of life threatening experiences than adults do. Pediatric patients often experience respiratory distress, respiratory, and shock before they enter into cardiac arrest. Therefore, PALS is structured on rapid, accurate assessments and timely interventions. The goal of PALS is to recognize and treat harbingers of cardiac arrest in children before they progress to cardiac arrest. If you re looking for our ACLS course, click here .

How long does it take to receive my provider card?
You will be able to print a copy of your provider card immediately after passing the certification exam, and we will mail your hard copy provider card via USPS First Class mail. Depending on where you live, your hard copy will arrive in 2-5 business days.
Is your course 100% online? Do I have to complete a skills test?
Our course is 100% online-based and you do not have to complete a hands-on skills test to complete any of our courses. Your question is an important one. When the physicians at ACLS Medical Training were creating our curriculum, they decided a hands-on skills test on a mannequin is not critical for a continuing education course. These tactile experiences cannot be duplicated in a skills course—they can only be learned through practice in the field, which comes as part of your clinical training. Therefore, our program does not require a skills test. Instead, you must demonstrate that you have mastered the didactic material by passing the examination. If your employer specifically requires a skills test, we can provide the appropriate documents for you to get checked off locally (separate from our organization).
Will I receive an American Heart Association card?
Our logo is on the top of the card as ACLS Medical Training is the organization who created the curriculum. The card you receive will say on the front that this course follows all American Heart Association guidelines.
