  • Ways to earn College credit FAST, for a NY agency.

    For the guys that dont have 60 credits for the NYPD(or whatever dept where credits are necessary)..this should be informative. And for the guys that have earned credits by unconvential means, please detail how you did it. please?

    Personally, I earned 18 credits alone by taking 2 CLEP exams. 12 in Spanish and 6 in Analyzing and interpreting literature.

        Have you completed any FEMA courses? How long do they usually take to complete and cost? Thanks

          I've completed all the ones you can possibly get credit for as of now. I believe 44 in total. Frederick community college charges 75bux a credit. You can actually apply them towards an emergency management degree at FCC, thomas edison state college or SUNY empire state college. They are tedious but worth it. Some are easier than others.

            I know how to do these tests easy, not the tedious way of printing them and reading them.... Gvine001 PM me and I'll let you know how to do them fast.. I also took all of them and got the transcript from Fredrick community college..

              Hey guys I have 34 credits from NYCCT from about 2 years ago (was on academic probation and ended up being dismissed) and was thinking about getting the remaining credits from FEMA. My question is will FEMA courses raise my GPA because my current GPA well below the 2.0 requirement for employment.

                i do not believe a fema course will raise your gpa, but it will give you college credits. may i suggest going to an accredited university and taking one college course and make sure you do well in it. one college course i suggest taking because it is easy and short is being certified in cpr so it is basically a cpr course and last about a month or so. if you do well in that course that will bring your gpa up. there is no need to take more than one college course if you just want to raise your gpa.

                    Hey guys i got 55 of my college credits through fema, what u do is take the courses that offer credit request your transcripts with fema and have them send it out to the school your choosing to transfer them to credits FCC is $76 bucks a credit they send you a student copy and official transcript, YOU DO NOT RECIEVE a gpa for theses course only get the college credit per examination depending on witch one you take, Thomas edition charges $430 for transferring up to 60 credits but before you take the exam just request what fema isp courses they except I was able to transfer 31 whith tesc , and got the rest with FCC. For each of these schools you need to have fema send your transcripts to the school of your choice and then fax the transcript request form and put in your credit card info and wait a few weeks for your transcripts to come, please if you guys have any questions feel free to ask , i wish i had someone to tell me where to go and what to do to get credits .

                              Thanks for all the helpful information prpapi105. i have two questions, first is FCC considered an accredited college to obtain college credits from? because I wanted to get my remaining credits through them and secondly does anyone happen to know a good school to enroll into for a CPR course so I can raise my gpa? Thanks..
