PALS Renewal Certification

 

The AHA PALS renewal is essential for healthcare providers to maintain proficiency in pediatric advanced life support techniques. The course updates knowledge on pediatric emergencies, reinforces critical interventions, and assesses hands-on skills. Renewal ensures readiness to manage pediatric cardiac arrest, respiratory distress, and other critical conditions effectively, improving patient outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is the difference between PALS and ACLS?

PALS focuses specifically on pediatric advanced life support techniques for patients up to 18 years of age, while ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) addresses cardiac emergencies in adults. The two courses cover different age groups and related medical conditions.

How long is the certification valid?

The AHA PALS certification is valid for two years. After that, individuals must complete a renewal course to maintain certification.

How soon do I receive my card after completing class?

At Code Blue Training we issue your AHA certification right at the end of class. Your card is received via email from the AHA. We also offer an option to print you a copy free of charge if requested.

Do I need any prerequisites to take the PALS course?

All students must complete the Precourse Self-Assessment and achieve a score of at least 70% before taking the PALS Course. Students must print their scoring report and bring it with them to class.

There is no limit to the number of times the student can take the Precourse Self-Assessment and it is free. 

The precourse can be found here.

Will I receive a certification card after completing the course?

Yes, upon successful completion of the AHA BLS course and passing the exam, you will receive an AHA PALS certification card, which is widely recognized in healthcare settings. Verify your card at this link here.

Can I take the PALS course if I'm not currently working in a pediatric setting?

While PALS is primarily intended for healthcare providers who care for pediatric patients, individuals who anticipate working in pediatric settings in the future or who want to enhance their pediatric emergency care skills may also benefit from taking the course. Even if you have a small chance of seeing a pediatric patient you want to be prepared!

The training was great! Exactly what I needed, and more. Looking to get my Personal Trainers certification renewed, which required a renewed CPR/AED. The Heartsaver class was perfect. Fulfilled the requirements, local location, with a very good and knowledgeable instructor! Will be back for future renewals.
