Pediatric Advanced Life Support

The American Heart Association recognizes Children’s Health as a Community Training Center for Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

PALS Vision

Our vision is to be the preeminent learning center to provide physicians, nurses, allied healthcare providers and emergency personnel with the cognitive and psychomotor skills necessary for resuscitating and stabilizing the critically ill or injured infant or child.

Our Goal

Our goal, with respect to delivering kids safely to the other side of childhood, is to provide professional development opportunities for participants that teach the basic and advanced life support techniques for infants and children recommended by the American Heart Association, and to be progressive in anticipating and providing future learning services to our community.


The PALS Course is for Health Care 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 PALS certification for their job.

Children's Health℠ is an American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center.

This course aims to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by teaching students to assess, recognized and manage potential and/or active respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest.

  • PALS Provider Course

    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.
