The PEPP Course is available as a hybrid course for both BLS and ALS:

The hybrid course is a combination of online learning, followed by hands-on practice in the classroom. Instead of attending a daylong traditional onsite course, students learn a portion of the course through self-directed online modules. After completing all of the online modules, students then attend a short onsite course for completion of hands-on practice, as well as instructor interaction and the final examination.

The American Academy of Pediatric is approved by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). Participants who successfully complete the PEPP Course are eligible to receive continuing education units (CEUs) through CAPCE. The BLS Hybrid Course provides 8.5 hours of CEUs, and the Onsite Course provides 8 hours. The ALS Hybrid Course provides 12.5 hours, and the ALS Onsite Course provides 14 hours.

Course Description:

PEPP is a comprehensive course featuring case-based lectures, video, hands-on skills stations, and small group scenarios.

The Basic Life Support (BLS) course is geared toward the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and the Advanced Life Support (ALS) course is geared toward the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) and Paramedic. The PEPP Course Coordinator should determine which course (BLS or ALS) is most appropriate for an individual. Any health professional who is responsible for the emergency care of children may find this course beneficial.

Course Cost: $150 per person

Course Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Participants must take the Precourse Online Module first purchased from Jones & Bartlett here: When prompted, please choose additional tools and online resources, then choose student resources, and under ordering options select either precourse access for either BLS or ALS depending upon certification hybrid option.  The 4th edition paperbook text is separate from this cost and is required as well.

  • After you have read the textbook and participated in the nine online modules, you will receive a Course Completion Certificate on your My Account page. Bring this certificate with you to the course.
