21. College Credit for FEMA courses

Many years ago I reported on FEMAs Emergency Management Institute and its agreement with Frederick Community College (FCC) in Maryland. FCC was offering undergraduate credit for many EMI Independent Study courses. Those credits could be applied toward FCC associate degrees.

Recently the EMI made a similar arrangement with the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC). The new agreement includes 174 of EMI‘s courses, both independent study and classroom offerings. Up to 90 EMI credits may be applied to UMGC bachelor degree programs.  This program may be cheaper than other means of obtaining credit.

You can obtain more details in EMI Training Bulletin 1621, and at the following UMGC website: https://sites.umgc.edu/corporate/emi/index.cfm
