What's an eCard?
An eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed course completion card and can be provided to students as proof of their certification. Not only that, you can present it to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course.
Why are eCards so convenient?
Students and employers can check training status of any eCard holder 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Align this card with the specific Training Center who issued it.
To verify that the eCard was issued by an AHA training center, validate the eCard credentials through the “Certificate/Card Lookup” on www.heart.org/CPR/mycards.
All cards have a copyright notice.
The expiration date will appear as a 2-digit month, 4 digit year, and 2 years from the issue date.
All information on the eCard is digitally populated based on the information entered by a valid Training Center Coordinator or Instructor.
The Instructor ID is an added layer of security to ensure that each card can be traced back to a specific instructor, training center, and their internal course rosters.
Employers may verify that an eCard is authentic by scanning the QR code on the eCard using a mobile device. Once the QR code is scanned, it will auto populate the
Instructors credentials for the employee to verify.
To check the validity of an AHA course completion card, contact the Training Center that issued the card. The Training Center’s information can be found on the back of the card. You can also check our Course Card Reference Guide (PDF).
While other organizations may offer similar cards, it is important to recognize the differences between non-AHA cards and valid AHA course completion cards.
To check the validity of an AHA eCard, visit the My Cards page and enter the code found on the card.
How do I get my eCard?
Once you successfully pass and complete a course with Life Safety Institute or one of our instructors you will receive and email from the AHA with activation information. eCards can sometimes take up to one week to be processed.
