    • If you are doing BLS, approximately 15-20 minutes.
    • If you are doing ACLS, approximately 30-40 minutes.
    • If you are doing PALS, approximately 40-50 minutes.
  • This may be different for varying levels of experience & knowledge. If you are prepared and ready to go, it will probably be a shorter time.
