HomePALS: How long does class last/

 

Question:

 

Approximately how long does the PALS Course take to complete?

 

Answer:

 

Approximate course completion times are listed below. Times are based on a recommended ratio of 6 students to 1 Instructor to 1 manikin or station (NOTE: the CPR and AED and Management of Respiratory Emergencies stations require 1 Instructor and 2 manikins for 6 students per station). Using different ratios will result in increased course completion times.

 

Full course: 10 to 14 hours, plus additional time for breaks and lunch

 

• Update with all optional stations: 8 hours 20 minutes, plus additional time for breaks and lunch

 

• Update without optional stations: 6 hours 20 minutes, plus additional time for breaks and lunch
