This hike is listed as MODERATE INTENSITY. However, please note that the elevation at the trail head is almost 8000 feet above sea level.

Instagram post 2089357191152004893_3908973380 Renew Your PALS at TravCon 2019

So there has been a post about Renewing your BLS and ACLS. But we aren’t done. There is more!!!!!! Renew your PALS while at the conference! 3 hr sessions are available throughout Mon & Tues. **Must purchase & complete AHA online certificate prior to arrival.

Description

Instructor: National Institute for Healthcare Education $132 online (prior to arrival)
$109 skill session (at conference)

The online portion must be completed prior to arrival – please arrive with printed certificate in hand. The instructor will be conducting the Skills Sessions (Parts 2 & 3) only. 
This is a quick, convenient, and LOW STRESS way for you to stay current on these certifications. Printed cards will be issued at end of course. This blended learning for ACLS, PALS, or BLS is per AHA rules open to ALL new, expired, or renewing students.

You can do the online portion at your own pace – stretch it out over an evening or even several days if you want – then you’ll spend less time in a classroom for the Skills Session review and checkoff – and you’re done! 
This is especially recommended for those who suffer from test anxiety because you can repeat the online scenarios and final exam until you pass, and the instructor will make sure you know what you need to know to pass the skills portion.

Instructions:

Complete the AHA online ‘HeartCode PALS’ Part 1 before you come to the conference.

Print the Online AHA Certificate(s) and bring them with you to the Skills Session.

You may either register for the skills session at the same time as the main conference, or anytime up until Sept 6th.

Schedule

Sunday, Sept 9th & 10th
Bally’s Conference Center

Registrations are due in advance so we have enough instructors available.
3 Hr sessions will be available for sign-ups throughout Monday & Tuesday in the registration portal. 
While it’s unlikely to take 3 hours, we are required to schedule this amount of time per AHA.
