How to claim your American Heart Association eCard
Congratulations on completing your training! The American Heart Association now offers eCards for certification; digital cards that can be accessed at any time. There is no longer a need to reprint lost or damaged cards, and you will have access to all of your training records in one convenient (and shareable) location. This information is also available in a video at https://player.vimeo.com/
After you have been assigned an eCard, you will first receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (sample at left) inviting you to claim your eCard online. You can also claim your eCard at any time by visiting the AHA eCards site at https://ecards.heart.org/student/myecards.
