Instructor Network

Make sure to sign up for the AHA Instructor Network. This site provides up-to-date reference information on ECC programs and science plus access to course resources and forms.

My Courses and eCards

We strongly encourage the use of the AHA Instructor Network’s My Courses online course roster manager and the issuance of eCards whenever possible.

An AHA eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed course completion card. eCards are valid course completion cards and can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course. Like printed cards, eCards also expire two years from the issue date.

The AHA has created a comprehensive Users Guide for the My Cards tool that includes step-by-step instructions for issuing AHA eCards. This guide can be found at the Support tab on the AHA Instructor Network.
