The AHA has announced that starting on 1/1/2018 they will only be issuing eCards to students that successfully complete one of their courses. The issuing of paper cards will be discontinued.
The AHA claims that eCards will be faster for students to obtain, easier to replace, and more secure the current paper cards. To receive an eCard each student most, submit their own email to the AHA to receive an eCard. No two students can have the same email address. Employers cannot use one email to obtain all its employee’s eCard, regardless as to if the employer pays for student certification or not.
After the Instructor submits your completed status, you will receive an invitation via email from the AHA to access your eCard. The AHA claims that you will receive your email invitation within 24 hours, on average.
