AHA eCards – What do I need to know?
As of February 2018, all AHA courses (ACLS, BLS, PALS) will provide eCards to students. You MUST provide a valid and accurate email address at the time of registration in order to receive your eCard.
Once a class is processed (3-5 business days), we will assign an eCard to you. The AHA will send you an email containing the link needed to validate the card from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not receive your link, please check your spam/junk/promotions folders before contacting the office. You MUST open the American Heart Association’s email and complete the steps in order for it to be valid. You will receive a special eCard code which can be shared with your employer to verify that your card is valid and current. The validity of cards can be checked by students and employers at heart.org/cpr/mycards. We will send the eCard code to your hospital’s Education Department or HR if they are a client of ours who paid for your courses or provided you with a discount code.
