About the Product

Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals, Third Edition is the most comprehensive source of information on emergency medical care for children available. This continuing education program, which set the standard for pediatric care in EMS with the publication of the First Edition, once again transforms pediatric prehospital education with this highly interactive, hybrid course. Based on the most current medical information and best practices, PEPP, Third Edition covers the critical knowledge and skills needed to rapidly evaluate, stabilize, and transport the pediatric patient. Like previous editions, PEPP offers students an engaging course that expands their knowledge of pediatric core concepts and promotes critical thinking through case-based learning, hands-on skill stations, live-action video, and small group scenarios. New to the PEPP course, the Precourse Online Module allows students to experience true hybrid learning. Now, students prepare in advance, completing the Precourse Online Module before attending the interactive one-day course. Developed by a top-flight author team of EMS professionals and pediatric physicians, the student manual meets and exceeds the pediatric-specific competency statements in the National EMS Education Standards. ALS-level content is clearly identified throughout the chapters, ensuring that students can focus on the content appropriate for their scope of practice.


  • The PEPP course is an innovative, comprehensive, and highly visual program that includes:

  • Case-based learning: Each chapter includes case studies designed to focus students on the critical decisions they will need to make in the field.

  • Engaging Activities: Hands-on skills stations, live-action video, and small group scenarios in a flexible structure allow instructors to offer the most dynamic pediatric course on the market.

  • Current and global content: Based on the most current medical information and best practices; student manual content supported by significant and current research from around the world.

  • *PEPP can be taught as an 8-hour BLS course or a 16-hour ALS course.
