The American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics co-brand PALS – or Pediatric Advanced Life Support – training. The PALS course is designed for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies with infants and children. These include personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units, and others who need a PALS course completion card for their job or other requirements.

Fort HealthCare complies with AHA requirements to provide Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and PALS training to staff and the community. On average, we train up to 150 people per month, employing over 100 instructors across all three disciplines. We run eight classes per month on an ongoing basis, as well as go out to various locations to provide training on-site.

Most patient care positions at Fort HealthCare may require a certification renewal every two years. To keep up to date with your training, check SWANK, visit, or contact Katie Gromala at or (920) 568-5248.
