Below is information regarding the issuing of eCards through the AHA. Students may now opt to receive an eCard instead of a paper card. Students are able to retrieve their card at their convenience at any time during the 2 year certification period. eCards must be requested prior to the issuance of paper cards to avoid additional charges. Please inform the Instructor at the beginning of class if you would like an eCard
AHA Student eCard Instructions
The American Heart Association now gives the instructor an option to issue an eCard. Printed cards are still available so it is at the discretion of the instructor on which type of card to issue.
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.
