Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

Paediatric Advanced Life Support Course - Full Course



This 2-day PALS course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or out-of hospital setting.

It is suitable for all health professionals with a need for advanced skills, competence and confidence in paediatric emergency situations and who may be required to respond to a paediatric cardiovascular emergency.

The mastery style of assessment is the form of assessment predominantly utilised during the course. Through using this style, specific targets are set and participants are required to meet these during the programme. Participants may pass each target on their first attempt, or require several efforts to reach the required standards. 


In order for participants to gain the most benefit and to achieve the assessment standards of the course, it is essential the online course readings and practice tests are completed prior to the course. 

Participants can access their online course from this link below. Username and password will be emailed to all confirmed course registrants approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the course date.


PALS book/manual will also be posted to the address provided on the registration form 3-4 weeks prior the course. 

Registration closing date is four weeks prior to course commencement date.

The course will be held at Simulation Centre for Patient Safety, University of Auckland Grafton Campus, Bldg 502 Level B, 85 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland 1023. 

Please note: a minimum of 5 participants is required for the course. In the event of less than 5 participants the course may be deferred or cancelled.
