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. This program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to 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, students practice and test their skills with an AHA PALS Instructor. Upon successful completion of all parts of the course, students are emailed an AHA PALS course completion card, valid for two years. Continuing education credit is available for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and EMT/paramedics.

Who is eligible to take an advanced provider course (ACLS, PALS)?

Historically only medical providers that were in charge of running cardiac arrests were admitted to ACLS and PALS courses. The new guidelines and focus of the curricula is to educate all members of the healthcare team that may be involved in resuscitation. Any healthcare provider is eligible to take an ACLS or PALS course. Students are expected to be familiar with the curriculum prior to the course date. Instructors will work with all levels clinicians to ensure that the expectations of their skill level are evaluated during the course.
