Can AHA/MTN course completion cards be issued to VA nurses or other civil service employee who are non-DoD employees?

The formal agreement between the American Heart Association and the Military Training Network authorizes the MTN to train and confer AHA/MTN course completion cards to active duty, reserve, and National Guard military service members and DoD civil service employees. The scope of our agreement does not encompass all agencies, such as Department of Agriculture civil service employee or Veteran's Administration civil service employee, or hospital volunteers.

Hospital commanders, may at their discretion, train other classifications of personnel and issue a local course completion card from the hospital, but it may not be an AHA/MTN card.
