The American Heart Association requires every learner to have a Provider Manual. This is a mandate from the AHA not CompleteCPR or Prime Time Healthcare.

The AHA PALS Provider Manual, for use by a single student, contains all the information students need to successfully complete the AHA PALS Course, including information needed before, during, and after class.

  • Updated to reflect new science in the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC
  • The PALS Provider Manual is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of respiratory and/or cardiovascular emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest in pediatric patients.
