T he following organizations have trainings that are PALS-approved for certification. Organizations that have an asterisk(*) alongside the title require their IN-PERSON training only to attain PALS certification. At this time, an online doula training cannot replace the valuable skills and experiences that a hands-on workshop can provide for such an immensely hands-on profession. Please check with our certification chair prior to selecting a training to make sure you understand the full process for the organization you are considering.
