MASDN works in tandem with approved trainers, instructors and educational resources to fulfill the need for qualified and certified handlers in this field. The working mantra of MASDN is "Strength in Knowledge, not Numbers." For this reason, inclusion in MASDN is by invitation only from another professional in the network. Once the invitation has been extended and accepted by the potential candidate, the training committee may review the potential candidates experience, goals, history and conduct a background check before approving a candidate. Approval or denial of  potential candidates are at the sole discretion of the committee.
