The AHA’s pediatric-focused courses provide advanced assessment and recognition training for healthcare professionals who treat cardiovascular emergencies in infants, children, and adolescents.   

PALS- This course uses a scenario-based, team approach to teach pediatric emergency respiratory management or cardiac arrest.
PEARS- The main focus of PEARS is prevention, and specifically the assessment, recognition and stabilization of pediatric victims at risk of severe cardiopulmonary distress.

  • Turn in a Complete Roster by email, mail or fax within 10 days following the class.
