    • All recertifying candidates must read the manual and complete the APLS e-modules.
    • ALSG offer an amnesty for candidates who fulfil certain criteria: practicing APLS regularly and working in the following roles - on-call general paediatrics; paediatric intensive care; paediatric anaesthesia; general or paediatric emergency department.

    • Nursing and AHP candidates must have done a minimum of 2 full 2-day APLS courses and be currently practising in acute paediatrics regularly before they can apply to do the APLS recertification course.
