Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Instructor Course
The purpose of a PALS Instructor Course is to develop proficiency in teaching, organizing, coordinating, and conducting a PALS Provider Course. PALS Instructors must have a firm working knowledge and understanding of the PALS material. They are also expected to demonstrate in-depth detailed knowledge of current emergency Respiratory, shock, and cardiac care. Participants learn to design a provider course to meet the needs of a specific student population. Currently accepted principles of adult learning, the ability to sequence instruction, the use of interactive teaching strategies and evaluation of student learning and progress are essential facets of this course.
On completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
Reveal proficiency in current PALS skills and concepts
Demonstrate proper function and use of PALS teaching equipment
Teach a PALS course using the video instruction and lesson maps
Demonstrate the ability to teach PALS concepts in a small group setting
Demonstrate the ability to evaluate students fairly and provide appropriate remediation if needed
Use testing materials to conduct skills testing
