Claiming & Verifying AHA eCards

Claiming & Verifying AHA eCards

EMSTAR had transitioned to ecards for the issuance of course completion cards to providers and students who successfully complete the requirements of AHA courses. Upon completing the course, students will receive an email from with a link to claim your eCard online. If you do not receive this email, please check your Spam or Junk folders prior to alerting your Training Center or Instructor. 

eCards reduce the risk of counterfeits, improve the efficiency of card management, ensure the identity of the issuing TC and Instructor, and allow students to store proof of their course completion electronically. 


Once you have claimed your card, you can view your eCard online through the AHA’s website at any time. Simply enter your first and last name and email address.

eCards are distributed during normal business hours. EMSTAR makes every effort to issue cards the same day as the course. Night and weekend classes will have their eCards issued the next following business day. You can download the instructions by clicking the button.

Please note that if you do not claim your eCard, you will not be able to show proof of course completion to your employer.

eCard Instructions


Upon completing the course, students will receive an email that will guide them through claiming their eCard. Employers are only able to verify a student's eCard if the student has completed all the required steps. You can view the students instructions on how to claim their card here.

Once all steps are completed, students will be able to save, print and email their eCard. As an employer you can verify the students eCard by clicking the “Verify eCard” Button, select the "Employer" tab and enter the students eCard Code from their eCard to confirm.
