How to Get Ready
The PALS 1 Day Initial Certification 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 Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.
Precourse Requirements You should prepare for the course by doing the following:
1. Review and understand the information in your PALS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 12 case scenarios.
2. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested on 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the PALS Provider Course.
3. Review, understand, and complete the Precourse Self- Assessment on the Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent). Enter the code "PALS" to take the pretest. You must get at least an 84% to pass. You can retake the pretest as many times as you need.
4. Print your scores for the Precourse Self-Assessment and bring them with you to class. If you have printer issues, please take a picture with your phone and just text it to (719) 551-1222 and I will print a copy.
What to Bring and What to Wear:
Bring your Pediatric Advanced Life Support Provider Manual to each class. You will need it during each lesson in the course.
You may wish to purchase the AHA’s 2015 Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers (optional), which you may bring to the course to use as a reference guide during some of the stations in the course.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. You will be practicing skills that require you to work on your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting.
