FROM: American Heart Association
CPR & First Aid (ECC)
SUBJECT: Validity of AHA eCards
An AHA eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed AHA course completion card and can be
provided to students as an alternative to a printed card. eCards are valid course completion
cards and can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA
course. eCards are available only for provider-level courses in the United States.
Security & Validation:
eCards are more secure than printed cards. A three-point verification by the TCC, Instructor and
student, is required to issue and claim eCards. eCard information is populated electronically by
the TCC or Instructor and can only be altered by the TCC or AHA Customer Service by using
AHA’s My Cards™. eCards can be easily verified by employers at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards
to prove issuance by a valid TC and Instructor aligned with that TC.
