The American Heart Association’s Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course is an instructor-led, classroom-based course that enhances healthcare providers’ skills in treatment of pediatric arrest and peri arrest patients. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.


The course uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to teach and reinforce the importance of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics.

The PALS Course is for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, and others who need a PALS course completion card for job or other requirements.
