1 day PALS course?

  1. Hey everyone, I've been surfing hospital sites looking to see if any offer PALS courses. I go to school one day a week and work three so I really need a 1 day PALS course, not the recert. Oh, this would be in michigan. I haven't been lucky searching hospitals, and the ones I did find were 2 day courses. thanks

    all the PALS classes I have been in have been 2 days. I don't think I could have done it in 1.

    PALS has a standard course content that is designated by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Assoc.. It has to be 2 days to meet the course guidelines. Unless you did a 16-18 hour day, I guess. I am an instructor and it is alot of material and workstations.

    The only 1 day PALS course that I am aware of is the recert. Will your employer give you a day of education leave to do PALS?

    We offer both Sat/Sun classes and Thur/Fri classes. Works with a variety of schedules. Other places do that also. Go on a weekend off?
