    Do any of the big 3 accept these for credit? I've searched but can't seem to get "doc net" to bring up any information.

    .net

    Do you mean dot net as in Microsoft .NET certification?

    This DOCNET is working as normal.


    DOCNET

    DOCNET courses are a series of online multimedia presentations of key Joint Doctrine information. The lessons are designed to enhance Joint Doctrine learning. Each DOCNET course has been drawn directly from doctrine without interpretation and is, therefore, an authoritative source of information for use by the Armed Forces of the United States and other Government professionals who require Joint Doctrine knowledge.

    Hello-- yes, those are the courses I meant. Thank you Michael. Do you know if these are accepted for credit at Excelsior, Charter Oak, or Tesc?? I can call, but I was hoping someone might already know the answer.

    Thank you

    Most people have trouble with the DOCNET courses because they only go to one of the links and not both, and in turn never get around to registering, before try to take the courses.

    I have completed all 32 DOCNET courses and have submitted them to TESC and am waiting to hear back if they will give credit for the courses. It is one of several things I am waiting to hear back on. I will of course post the results in the future on all the new things I find that can be used to get college credit.

    I'd like to take some of these courses, but the registration is asking for a "sponsor" who is in military or Government.

    Is there a way around this? Can I use the information of a Military person I know who has been honorably discharged?

    So, can Non-Military personnel get in on this, or no?

    Registration is not required for users accessing DOCNET from military (.mil) or government (.gov) domains. Access to DOCNET from non-military or non-government domains (e.g., .com, .edu, .net, or .org), requires username and password registration. Everyone not using a military or government computer system, including military and non-military personnel, needs to have either a military or government email address to register or a sponsor who is has a current military or government email address.

    Welp... I guess that disqualifies me (and probably greater than 90% of us here). Damn... If only I'd known about this when I was in Government.

    Why? All you have to do is ask someone you know in the military to give you his email address to use in registration. You know people here on this forum who are in the military. You have not even asked me to sponor you via private message.

    Have you taken the DOCNET Historical Collection Course yet? This one is open to the public without registration.

    Don't let the use of the sponsor's email address be a cause of concern. The student just enters the email address of the sponsor and the sponsor gets an email from DOCNET stating that the student wants to take courses. The sponsor writes back saying they will sponsor the person and the student gets approved. The sponsor's email address is not used again after that.

    I had no idea that was an option, but now...

    Hey Michael,

    Besides attempting to get the DocNet courses accepted by TESC, couldn't I just enroll at APU, have them add my DOCNet courses to a APU transcript, and then use that?

    I see what the transcript evaluation fee is at APU ($75), but I can't seem to find what the enrollment fee is. Would you happen to know it?

    I also wonder if APU takes FEMA courses...?
     
  15. MichaelGates

    No, from what I have heard AMU/APUS requires that you acutually be enrolled in a degree program and taking courses from them before they will give credit. AMU/APUS is not trying to operate as a credit bank with these courses.

    I understand, but couldn't I just enroll in a degree program, have my courses evaluated and transcripted and then use the transcript?

    Do you know if they grant credit for FEMA courses at all?

    Hey Michael,

    What happened? I sent that message to you, but I haven't gotten a reply...

    I'm interested in that information myself...

    Do you have any information on this, Michael?
