WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Delivered in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the PALS Provider course is intended for healthcare providers working in a hospital or non-hospital setting who wish to increase their skills in the emergency cardiovascular and respiratory care of children and infants. Techniques and skills for resuscitating and stabilizing infants and children in respiratory failure, cardiopulmonary arrest, or shock are introduced. The PALS Provider course utilizes case-based sessions, simulations, video presentations, didactic discussions and hands on practice to help each student achieve success in the course and in practice.
The Basic Life Support (BLS) course is required prior to completion of your PALS course and is included with your tuition. We train and certify you in these skills during your PALS course.
PALS GUIDELINES UPDATE
In Oct 2020, the latest updates of the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Guidelines were released. Our ACLS | BLS courses support current practice with the new ACLS and BLS guidelines, including the latest updates with Covid-19.
Please review the PALS Provider Manual and the PALS student materials available at Heart and Stroke Foundation (you must log in to access PALS and BLS skill videos and a precourse quiz – found in the ‘Resources’ tab). To refresh your ECG knowledge visit our SkillStat ECG Simulator. Basic ECG interpretation is a prerequisite skill. A number of other useful resources are freely available through SkillStat’s Library.
The PALS Provider manual – not included in the course tuition – can be ordered below. It is shipped expedited the next business day
After you register, you will also receive an email with links to a number of official release documents freely available online.

“Thank you for the hands on practice. These situations don’t happen regularly in our rural ER so practice is so helpful. I liked the online Zoom portion combined with hands on practise.” – Rachel (June 2021)- Rachel – PALS Provider, Vancouver
