Digital certificates can be viewed, printed or shared online and can be accessed anytime through your Red Cross Account.  Each certificate includes a unique ID and a QR code which meets employment requirements and allows employers to easily confirm your certificate is valid.  There is no need to carry your printed certificate around anymore!
