    free graduate credits from CDSE (21 graduate, 11 LD, 3 UD)

    Building on the free credits from my other post, here are some more ACE credit through Center for Development of Security Excellence.

    Is this available to civilians? If so, you might consider posting this to the main board. That's a pretty good number of free courses, and some very interesting titles.

    It is attractive, there is a whole 30 UL courses there....but if you look several require residencies and they appear to primarily be restricted to Military (I didn't look at all of them).

    It would be a great way to complete the HS/CJ concentration at any of the big 3 .

    Has anyone tried these? I look on ACE and, while some of the titles are close, the course numbers do not match. They look very interesting.

    I have tried to register for the certification courses, but it requires to be Government employee (I am contractor). Also, those are taught in-classroom courses, not interactive on demand likes other courses.
