Restricted or Classified Courses
Return to Training Table of Contents

Any MARS  member who, as a member of an active duty, reserve, or National Guard command, or through employment with the US Government, or a contractor with the U.S. Government,  has taken a correspondence course, school, or other training that is considered Secret, Top Secret, or otherwise restricted can not apply for MARS credit for that course.

   The very existence of such courses is sometimes classified;

   The nature of the material covered is usually not identifiable to other than those with a need and a right to know;

   It is highly unlikely that the material in the course will contain any direct benefit to MARS; and,

   It is unlikely that MARS staff could obtain from the issuing authority confirmation of the course, it's completion, or the nature of the subject matter.
