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

    It would be cool to use them for UL credit in a bachelors degree such as Homeland Security at TESC/COSC...be great to use with FEMA

    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.

    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.
