The login flow on ATLAS.

If you are on a mobile, click the menu button (Hamburger icon on top right as shown in the STEP 1 image) to visit login page.

If you already have an account, Enter credentials and login. You may use social account login (labeled 5) if that’s the same email ID you gave to the instructor.

If you have created an account for ACLS or PALS pre-course self-assessment, you must be having an account already. If in doubt, click forgot password. If there’s an account tied to your email ID, you will receive a link for password recovery.

If you don’t have an account, Click “Create new account” (labeled 3) and use the same email ID you gave to the AHA training center. The training center will allocate your certificate to the same email ID.

Previous method

This method still works but we suggest you use the method given above as that is much easier and updated method.

Step 1 – Visit AHA eCards portal

Upon completion of the course, your ITC (AHA international training center) will process your certificate (timing varies between centers but most of them do it within 48hrs, some do it the same day), so that you can check and download AHA certificates any time within the validity of that card – 2 years from date of attending/ passing the course.
Your training center will give you an eCard code. Copy it and visit the eCard website by clicking the button below.

Step 2 – Enter your code

Enter the eCard number on the last column or enter your exact details (name / email) to find your eCard and click on Search. If the data entered by you matches with a card that is already processed by your training center, it’ll ask you to setup a security question and answer. If the data does not match, it’ll give the following error.

No eCard found. Please contact your Training Center. 

This means, you have entered wrong data or your training center has not processed your eCard yet. Get in touch with your trainer.

If the data matches with an eCard, you’ll see the following screen. The first 3 columns and the Training center data is Autopopulated (Not editable). If you see any errors in name, contact your trainer before claiming the eCard. Just choose one of the following questions and enter an answer. (Note it down somewhere as it’s case sensitive. Meaning, PassWord and password are not the same)

Step 3 – Claim your eCard

You may send it to your employer if they ask for one.
