Additional Information

Blended Online PALS Certification Chicago IL Classes

There are many other Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Certifications that are offered online. Most employers and schools will only accept PALS classes through the American Heart Association (AHA). Illinois Safety is an approved American Heart Association training center  neighboring Chicago in Elmwood Park. There are plenty of free parking spaces right outside of our office.

Pay very close attention to the language in the certifications of online programs. “Approved by AHA certified doctors” or “recommended by AHA approved physicians” is confusing language that tries to get around the point that the American Heart Association (AHA) has not actually certified the process. Make sure that you only take classes and submit exams that are directly certified by the AHA itself.

The American Heart Association offers a Blended Online PALS class. The blended PALS class gives the student the same certification as if they took the whole PALS class in person. To complete the online blended PALS Certification, Students must:
