​Course Format 

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

BLS 
  • The traditional onsite course is a 9.25-hour course, conducted entirely in the classroom.

  • The hybrid course is a combination of online learning (8.0 hours of education), 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.

ALS 
  • The traditional onsite course is a 16.75-hour course, conducted entirely in the classroom.

  • The hybrid course is a combination of online learning (14.0 hours of education), followed by hands-on practice in the classroom. Instead of attending a 2-day 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 1-day 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.
