American Heart Association's E-Cards

IT's COMING!! January 2018

The AHA's eCards will be mandatory starting January 2018.
If you are not ready; then get ready.  


-- Electronic course completion cards

Beginning January 1, 2018, all US-based AHA Training Centers will be required to use AHA's ecards for the issuance of course completion cards to providers and students who successfully complete the requirements of AHA courses.
  • eCards reduce the risk of counterfeits, improve the efficiency of card management, ensure the identity of the issuing TC and Instructor, and allow students to store proof of their course completion electronically.
  • This will be a significant change for students & providers
  • The American Heart Association eCards offer a simple, secure, and efficient way to provide students with their credentials after they complete a course.

eCard features and benefits:

  • Electronic course completion cards are viewable online, and offer a valid alternative to printed course completion cards
  • Can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an American Heart Association course, and employers can verify the eCard online
  • Valid for 2 years
Once students have been assigned an eCard, they will receive an e-mail notification with a link to claim their eCard online. From there, students will need to review their student profile page to update and confirm their contact information, set up a security question, agree to American Heart Association's standard Terms of Use, and complete a brief survey. They will then be able to view their eCard.

As a student, you must create an account at
Once you do, this will be where all your certifications will be kept for you to share and download.
