This product is the eCard version of the course completion card for students who pass the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) course based on the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC. Once a student successfully completes the course, the eCard is issued by the Training Center Coordinator or Instructor; the student then receives an e-mail allowing him or her to claim the eCard online. Please include an e-mail address when ordering. Confirmation of your eCard purchase will be sent to you, along with instructions on how to access eCards. You will receive a notification from the American Heart Association Instructor Network when your eCards are available for use. This product is not eligible for the standard 30-day return policy.
eCards are issued to Instructors via the AHA Instructor Network through the My Courses system. The card is then issued to the participant’s email and they have access to their card for the entire 2 years. Participants have the choice to download, save, print, or forward the card. If a paper card is printed and lost, s/he can simply download another. It is preferred to issue the eCard to a personal email address because many people do not have access to a work email address from home, which could prolong the process of them receiving their certification. Once the student is issued their certification, they will receive a code that can be given to employers who can validate their card at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards.
eCards can take 24-48 hours to become available on the AHA Instructor Network.
