American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Life Support Instructor Course is to develop proficiency in teaching, organizing, coordinating and conducting an 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 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.
