You must have BLS affirmation to take PALS!
A current AHA Basic Life Support Healthcare Provider or ARC CPR
for Professional Provider affirmation is a mandatory prerequisite
for enrolling in PALS provider, update and instructor courses.
A photocopy of both sides of your unexpired BLS
Healthcare or Professional Provider Card must be mailed
with registration, or faxed to (816) 234-9258 prior to the course.
Note: Heartsaver/Plus and Pediatric Basic Life Support/Plus cards
do not meet this prerequisite, as these programs
are presented for the lay public.
There are many facilities that offer BLS. To find one, contact
the American Heart Association office nearest you (see below).
Employees and staff of Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics
(CMH) can contact our PALS
Coordinator in CMH Education at (816) 234-9262 about our course
