The American Heart Association’s Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.

The American Heart Association’s PALS training is cutting-edge in terms of its evidence-based content, and uses a well-tested methodology that can dramatically improve both the learning and retention of lifesaving skills.
