What are the pre-requisites for ACLS and PALS?
For every ACLS and PALS course (Renewal and Provider), a Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider course needs to be completed in the prior 12 months. Please note that the HSFC will only accept their BLS-HCP course as a pre-requisite for ACLS and PALS courses.
SkillSTAT bundles BLS as a paid option with all ACLS and PALS courses offered in the lower mainland of British Columbia. It is automatically included in the course tuition for courses outside the lower mainland. We also offer BLS courses as a stand-alone offering.
For all Renewal courses, a prior course must have been completed within the last two years to qualify for the 1 day renewal course. Both PALS and ACLS courses require a working ability to identify ECG rhythms.
