Each accredited veterinarian is assigned a six digit National Accreditation Number (NAN), which can be utilized the following ways:
|1.||To print Certificates of Completion for each Web-based module of APHIS approved supplemental training (AAST)|
|2.||To create a record of attendance on the AAST Sign-In Sheet when attending AAST lectures at veterinary conferences|
|3.||To document performance of accreditation duties, use your NAN as instructed by the APHIS Veterinary Medical Officer overseeing each State in which you are authorized|
A NAN does not authorize veterinarians to perform accredited duties nationally. Veterinarians must be granted authorization from the APHIS Veterinary Medical Officer overseeing each State in which they wish to perform accredited duties.
