How to Use Our PALS Study Materials

The Experienced Provider

If you are already a PALS Provider and are confident in your knowledge and skills, briefly familiarize yourself with the topics and content in the PALS Study Guide. Once you are ready, take the 40-question PALS recertification examination. ACLS Medical Training provides unlimited re-takes so you do not pass the first time, you can always try again.

The First Time Student

If this is your first time seeking a PALS certification, we recommend going through the PALS Study Guide very carefully. The topics and content may be new for you. Since any part of it will be on the exam, you will need to know your stuff. You should be very comfortable with the PALS algorithms before you attempt the certification exam. The PALS practice test is a good way to check your knowledge level before you take the 50-question PALS certification examination.

A Provider with a Lapsed Certification

If it has been more than two years since you had PALS certification, you will want to determine which areas you may have forgotten since your last certification. For most people, this will be the medication doses or the algorithms. We have that content in our Learning Center and in the PALS Study Guide. Once you have refreshed your memory, you may be ready to take the PALS recertification examination. If you pass on the first attempt—Congratulations!—you are PALS certified. If you don’t pass, review the PALS study materials again. There you can firm up any areas of weakness and retake the test when you are ready.
