Privacy Act and HIPAA Privacy Training

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Privacy Act training is required of all Defense Health Agency (DHA) civilian, military, and contractor personnel.

The DHA Privacy and Civil Liberties Office (Privacy Office) is responsible for the development and availability of a merged course that offers specialized training unique to the Military Health System (MHS). These efforts are enhanced by promoting a culture of compliance through awareness, education, and outreach activities, including orientation sessions, annual seminars, and in-person training events.

The mandatory HIPAA and Privacy Act training course must be completed within 30 days of on-boarding and annually, thereafter. The course is accessible via Joint Knowledge Online (JKO)

JKO is a learning platform recently designated as the Enterprise Learning Management System (LMS), where other LMSs in use across the MHS were retired and transitioned to. JKO offers various training courses, including the mandatory HIPAA and Privacy Act training. Please refer to the Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) Instructions on accessing JKO. 

New Workforce Members must self-register. Please note that a Common Access Card (CAC) is not required. Requests for assistance should be directed to the DHA Global Service Center:
