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 eSimulation technology, students assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students 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 Part 1 (takes approx. 5-8 hours), students practice and test their skills with an AHA PALS Instructor. The skills practice and testing (Part 2 & 3) session timeline varies based on the level of expertise of the student. If the student comes prepared they can complete their skills testing within 1.5 – 2 hours or less. The PALS Online skills testing schedule has been created for 2014 and dates are listed at the bottom of the page.
Upon successful completion of all three parts (online course and skills practice and testing session), students will receive an AHA PALS course completion card.
PALS Online Part 1 may be completed from any computer as long as it has speakers or headphones. Then you will need to call Carol or Rachel to schedule your skills testing (listed below).
