The PALS provider course (Advanced Pediatric Life Support) is a training course specially developed for medical professionals to ensure that they are able to lead or be involved in pediatric interventions, both in and out of hospital.

Beginning with the introduction of an appropriate simulation case with a real patient on video, the actions to be taken by the team are first discussed and then practiced several times in a team. The case simulation serves the purpose of reinforcing important key elements when caring for patients. In order to prepare participants for cases of emergency, the different case scenarios are designed in such a way that the participants are either a team member or the team leader. The course book will be sent to every participant at least four weeks before the start of the training course to ensure that they have time to prepare.

The American Heart Association (AHA) strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.
