What is an eCard?
An eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed course completion card and can be provided to students as an alternative to a printed card. eCards are valid course completion cards and can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course. Like printed cards, eCards also expire two years from the issue date.
AHA eCards are more secure than printed cards. A three-point verification by the Training Center and student, is required to issue and claim eCards. eCards can be easily verified by employers at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards to prove issuance by a valid American Heart Association Training Center.
How do claim my AHA eCard after the course?
Students who have been assigned/emailed an eCard will receive an email inviting them to claim their eCard online. From the email, students will click on a hyperlink to view their eCard. This hyperlink will direct students to the Student Profile webpage.
Students are then asked to complete a brief six-question survey about their class experience. Once the student survey has been completed, students will see their individual eCard
