What is an AHA eCard?
According to the AHA an eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed AHA course completion card. These are the new certification cards that are issued to those who successfully pass a CPR/AED/First Aid or BLS/ACLS/PALS class. eCards are valid course completion cards and can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course. Paper cards are no longer available.
eCards can be verified by employers at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards to prove issuance by a valid TC (training center) and Instructor.
Please note that participants will receive an email from the AHA after class and must click on the link in the email to claim their card. This is the student’s responsibility as no one else is able to claim or access the card prior to this step.
The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not
represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.
ALL classes are non-refundable and must be paid in advance.
