Pediatric Education for Pre-Hospital 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.
PEPP is a comprehensive, innovative, and highly visual course featuring case-based lectures, live-action video, hands-on skills stations, and small group scenarios.
PEPP is a 2 day course that covers EMR to ALS. 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. Any health professional who is responsible for the emergency care of children may find this course beneficial.
Attendance of the entire program as well as scoring at least 80% on the written examination is required for course completion and certification.
