PALS Certification | Martens Ambulance

What is PALS?

Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a certification available through the American Heart Association.  PALS teaches important concepts and the methodical approach to pediatric emergencies.  The goal of the PALS certification is to improve the outcome of seriously ill or injured children by preparing care providers.

Many of Marten’s emergency responder courses build off of one another.  Our CPR course lays the foundation of the Basic Life Support (BLS) certification.  In return, BLS is the groundwork for Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and PALS.  The PALS certification is geared directly towards children.  Discover more about training and course content below.

The PALS certification course is taught in an active classroom setting. Years of teaching experience proves small group learning to be effective.  The classroom-based setting allows learners group interaction and constant feedback from the instructor.  Small groups encourage participants to engage, ask questions, and reach a thorough understanding.  Coursework includes realistic pediatric emergency scenarios.  Simulated scenarios will teach learners the proper approach to assessing and treating children in the case of an emergency.
