Raytown EMS PEPP ALS Hybrid Course

Pediatric Education for the Prehospital Professionals (PEPP) represents a complete source of prehospital medical information for the emergency care of infants and children. Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, PEPP is an exciting curriculum designed to teach prehospital professionals how to better assess and manage ill or injured children.

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.

The hybrid course is a combination of online learning, followed by hands-on practice in the classroom. Instead of attending 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 Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS). Participants who successfully complete the PEPP Course are eligible to receive continuing education units (CEUs) through CECBEMS. 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.

The cost is $180 for the book, online access code, & onsite portion of course. If student has their own 3rd Edition PEPP book, but purchase the access code through Raytown EMS, the cost is $120. EMT or Paramedic may take the course.

EMR or EMT can take the BLS hybrid at the same time as the ALS Hybrid for $150 for book, online access code, & onsite portion. If student has their own 3rd Edition PEPP book, access code & onsite portion is then $90.
