PALS Precourse Requirements

PALS Precourse Self-Assessment and Precourse Work must both be completed before arriving to class.

PALS Precourse Self-Assessment

The PALS Precourse Self-Assessment is an online tool that evaluates a student’s knowledge before the course to evaluate their proficiency and determine the need for additional review and practice. The student must complete the Precourse Self-Assessment and achieve a score of at least 70% before taking the PALS Course. The student must print their successful completion certificate and bring it with them to class.

PALS Precourse Work

The PALS Precourse Work involves a student reviewing course content through online videos before entering the classroom. The video lessons cover multiple medical subjects and each lesson includes questions to engage the student. This prework allows more classroom time for hands-on skills training and leads to the student being better prepared to participate as soon as they enter the classroom.
