See below for the few common reasons that certifications are rejected.
Most facilities only accept American Heart Association (AHA) certifications for PALS, ACLS, BLS, & NIHSS.
If your NIHSS is not from American Heart Association, please use this link to take NIHSS through AHA for $10.00
Your Certification is from AHA but is RQI. Please make sure your RQI is up to date and renewed every 3 months (if applicable) at an RQI machine. If your certification is through RQI please use this link to verify and upload with E-card/Wallet card. https://certificates.rqi1stop.com/certificates/us/verify_certificate
The E-card (see example below) is typically required , rather than the wallet card.
If you have the wallet card you can lookup your E-card through this website: https://ecards.heart.org/student/myecards
Your certification expires within 30 days of start. Please have a class scheduled already as the facility will request this information in order to accept the certification.
