What is an eCard?
An AHA 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.
Is there a way employers can verify the authenticity of an AHA eCard?
Yes, employers may verify that an AHA eCard is authentic by entering the card information at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards.
The AHA has also created a memo on the validity of eCards for employers who may request an official AHA statement. Click here for this memo.
Are AHA eCards secure?
AHA eCards are more secure than printed cards. A three-point verification by the TCC, Instructor and student, is required to issue and claim eCards. eCard information is populated electronically by the TCC or Instructor and can only be altered by the TCC or AHA Customer Service by using AHA’s My Cards™. eCards can be easily verified by employers at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards to prove issuance by a valid TC and Instructor aligned with that TC.
Can an eCard be Printed?
Yes. An AHA eCard can be printed by the student or Instructor, if necessary.
How do students claim AHA eCards once the TCC/TC Admin or Instructor has emailed their eCards?
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.
