Where Else Does The Heart Center Offer PALS Classes and Training?
The Heart Center offers PALS classes at Kaiser Permanente locations in Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. You can also register for PALS classes at The Heart Center’s other Virginia class locations: Reston Hospital Center in Fairfax County, Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, and our main location in Alexandria, Virginia.
Important: Please read the information below before registering for a class. You may choose between a traditional or online course.
Traditional PALS Classes
The Heart Center offers classroom-based PALS classes at many different Kaiser Medical Centers (see below for details). There is no web-based portion to these classes. Classes are held on a rotating schedule, and it is the responsibility of Kaiser employees to find a class that fits their schedule. The Medical Center can filter the calendar to make finding a class easier.
Online classes allow students to take the course at their own pace, either in the comfort of their home or in the workplace. Once the online class has been completed, the student must register (via our website) for an in-person skills check. There is a separate fee for the class and the skills check. Skills checks are held at Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers and also weekly at our main location in Alexandria, VA.
Certification cards will be mailed to Kaiser students within 5-10 days of successful completion of the course.
