How to Claim your American Heart Association eCard
Congratulations on completing your training! Next step: claiming your eCard. There are 3 ways to do this:
Method #1 - AHA Website: Once CPR Seattle has issued your card (typically between 2-48 hours after your class), visit this AHA website and simply type in your name, email address, and follow the instructions on the page.
Method #2 - Text the AHA: If you provided your mobile phone number when you enrolled with CPR Seattle, simply text 51736. You will receive instructions on how to claim your card (please allow CPR Seattle up to 48 hours to input your data into the AHA system).
Method #3 - From your Email: Once CPR Seattle has input your data in the American Heart Association database, you will receive an email from email@example.com. Simply follow the instructions you receive to claim your BLS, CPR and/or First Aid certification card.
That should be all you need, but if you wish to see the steps that you will follow once you are on the AHA website, they are outlined below.
