Alternative PALS – PALS Heartcode Online
The American Heart Association offers an alternative way for you to receive your PALS certification card called PALS Heartcode eLearning. In this course, you do most of the coursework and take the written test on your computer (you can start and stop as needed). Then you come in to our office for the 1 hour skills testing. You would receive the same certification card as if you are taking the regular PALS course. View more info here: PALS Online Course

NEW PALS Book Policy (Copyright 2020, ISBN: 978-1-61669-785-3) $60
The American Heart Association requires all students to bring the current PALS book (2020 version) to their training class (the old 2016 PALS book is no longer valid). This is the same policy across the United States and in the Bay Area. This book policy is mandated by the American Heart Association and every training school must follow this policy to maintain their license. The book is not used much in class, but it is used as reference material after your course. If you buy the book from us, you will pick up the book on the day of your course. We do not ship the book and you cannot pick up the book prior to class.
CA Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, & EMS personnel only receive CE credits after this course. Ask your instructor on the day of class. You have 30 days after your course to claim your CEs. CMEs are not issued and CEs are not issued for any other profession.
