Our PALS Courses Are Nationally Accredited

It’s a little-known fact that there is no one, national approving body for PALS training and certification. That means you can get your certification from any qualified organization, including ProTrainings, the American Heart Association or the Red Cross.

However, students who have tried other certification organizations prefer us for our versatility, accessibility, and ease of certification and renewal. At ProTrainings, we provide legitimate, quality training that adheres to the ILCOR/AHA guidelines and is approved by numerous third party accrediting organizations and 99% of employers.

What’s in a typical PALS course?

A Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) online course includes learning the medical procedures and techniques designed for the urgent treatment of respiratory emergencies, cardiac arrest, and other life-threatening situations with pediatric patients. 

PALS certification courses also teach advanced skills such as:
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythm interpretation for core PALS rhythms
  • Airway management and appropriate adjuncts 
  • PALS drugs and pharmacology
  • Practical application of PALS rhythms and drugs
  • Effective high-performance team skills for Basic Life Support and PALS. 
Because good Pediatric Basic Life Support (BLS) skills are foundational to PALS skills, we strongly encourage completing a BLS certification in addition to earning your PALS certification. In many cases, BLS is a prerequisite for taking the PALS online course. 

Students who enroll in the ProPALS course are required to have already obtained the basic knowledge and skills in Advanced Life Support.
