The Pediatric Advanced Life Support course must be renewed every 2 years.  This class offers students a chance to update and refresh themselves on pediatric assessment and learn any new information from instructors who have received the most current up to date information available.  This course is Instructor-led course and 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 Pediatric Advanced Life Support Renewal Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes. 

Pre-course requirements:  Students must bring their current (non-expired) PALS Provider card. Please read the student manual and complete the pre-test prior to the class.  Student textbooks are required and are available for purchase at NWRTC.  The PALS Provider Course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or an out-of-hospital setting.  Because the PALS Renewal Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand. Prior to the course you should also know ECG rhythm identification, related pharmacology and the systematic approach to pediatric assessment using the evaluate-identify-intervene model.  Once you have registered, you will receive a Pre-course letter that will explain the course in greater detail.  You will also be required to pass a written exam and skills evaluation at the end of the course.  Call if you have any questions.

Renewal of your BLS Healthcare Provider CPR card it is not included in the cost of your PALS class.  However, we do offer a Healthcare Provider CPR renewal option for anyone attending one of our PALS classes for a discounted cost of an additional $40.00.  The time for the class will be added at the end of the PALS class.  If you would like to register for this you can register by phone or come to the front office the day of your PALS course.
