independant study courses I have completed close to 15 of these courses, even applied for the Professional Development Series Certificate of Completion, which is supose to arrive in a month from FEMA. I am wondering if any of the classes could count for science requirments such as hazardous materials, or some of the radiology emergency courses? The ACE evaluatoin only applies to onsite courses not these IS classes. But if these have been accepted at a CC, you can always use them in the portfolio option... I keep waiting for Hille to jump into this thread.
