- “How to Claim your AHA eCard” Handout
Use the Excel spreadsheet “eCards Student Information template” and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org after the class. We can upload the template directly to the website for issuing eCards, saving time and eliminating errors from manually inputting the student information. You must get the paperwork to us within a week after the class because we are required by AHA to issue eCards within 20 days of the class.
If you need to rent equipment, submit the equipment rental form by email to email@example.com. Please note the equipment must be checked out and returned to IWCC staff between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm, Monday-Friday, excluding holidays.
During class give all your students the “How to Claim Your AHA eCard” handout and go over it with them. It’s important they use a personal email they check on a regular basis. Let them know AHA requires students to claim their own eCards. Someone else, including employers, cannot claim an eCard on behalf of a student.
After students have claimed their eCards, they can view their eCard online through the AHA’s website, www.heart.org/cpr/mycards, at any time. They simply enter their first and last name and email address. If their employer requires proof of completion, they can email them a copy from the eCard landing page.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with anything you need, and thank you for your dedication to teaching CPR!
