This American Heart Association Assessment is FREE. Before taking the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider Course, each student is required to take the Precourse Self-Assessment. The Precourse Self-Assessment helps evaluate knowledge necessary to be successful in the PALS Provider Course and determines the need for additional review and practice.
A minimum score of 80% must be achieved to pass the Precourse Self-Assessment. There is no limit to the number of times you can take the Precourse Self-Assessment. Once a score of 80% or higher is achieved, each student must print his or her certificate displayed on the PALS Student Website. This certificate must be presented to the PALS Course Director before a student can take a PALS Provider Course.
