To obtain a PALS certification, participants have the option of either taking the Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS) classroom course in Sacramento or Yuba City, or choose the elearning/blended online option.

PALS Classes in Sacramento and Yuba City

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) classes in Sacramento and Yuba City locations 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.

The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. This classroom-based course uses a scenario-based, team approach to teach pediatric emergency management of patients approaching or already in respiratory or cardiac arrest.
We offer the initial PALS certification on the same day. How? Our PALS classes are smaller, which enables the instructor to pay special attention to the needs of the students. Each student has ample opportunity to go through each skills stations, practice core scenarios, and ultimately improve skills. You'll receive your American Heart Association card immediately after successfully  completion of the course.

If you have already taken your initial PALS course and looking to renew your card, we offer the PALS Update course in both Sacramento and Yuba City locations. Alternately, choose the elearning/blended online course option for your renewal course if you detest sitting in the classroom for long hours.

HeartCode® PALS

HeartCode® PALS Part 1 is a web-based, self-directed program that teaches healthcare providers knowledge and skills needed to recognize and prevent cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. Using e-Simulation technology, students assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings where they can apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about pediatric advanced life support.

After completing HeartCode PALS Part 1, students must successfully complete a hands-on skills practice and testing session (parts 2 and 3) with our AHA PALS Instructor. Students will receive an AHA PALS course completion card, valid for two years, upon successful completion of all three parts.

If you have already purchased and completed Part 1, then you can sign up here or call our office to schedule a time for your HeartCode® PALS skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3).
