Credit for FEMA Training

Excelsior College awards credit for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) training.

The American Council on Education (ACE) has made credit recommendations for FEMA’s National Emergency Training Center (NETC) courses. Two series of courses have been evaluated by ACE: NETC Emergency Management Institute (EMI) and NETC National Fire Academy (NFA). These typically are not independent study courses. Students who have taken a course offered by NETC EMI or NETC NFA can either submit an ACE transcript or a transcript from NETC EMI or NETC NFA. The non-IS credit recommendations are offered through ACE and can be found from the ACE Credit Registry and Transcript System.

To learn more about the Federal Government Alliance with Excelsior, visit Feducation or call 844-843-9296. If you are a veteran or active-duty military, call 844-843-9299. Remember that as a federal government employee, you or your spouse or partner receive discounted tuition as well as the opportunity to defer tuition payment until your course is complete! Make sure to mention that you are with the federal government to ensure you receive partnership discounts and other benefits.
