This is what drives most people crazy about the whole FEMA course process - It's bloody impossible to find a reliable list of which courses will count and where.

The first is that these FEMA courses, depending on your school, are almost always applied as either general elective credits or Applied Professional credits. The second catch is that the FEMA courses themselves are not evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE).
Whether you're a TESC student (great value) or a student at another institution (good value), FEMA courses are definitely something to think about.
Once you buy the courses you've already completed, they'll be sent to Frederick Community College and within a few weeks will be ready for transcription.
When the approved courses have all been identified, you'll then download a copy of their Emergency Management Registration Form, fill it out, and attach a copy of each certificate that you'd like to register.
Once the courses have been registered with Clackamas, it's a simple matter of requesting a transcript to be sent to your school of choice. Whichever school you decide to use to transcribe those FEMA courses, the important thing to remember is that the school you actually attend has the final say on what credits they'll accept. The course provides an opportunity for participants to begin developing an interface between an Incident Management Team and EOC personnel. This course describes the role, design, and functions of EOCs and their relationships as components of a multiagency coordination system. FEMA courses are a confusing subject for many and I've done my best to answer any questions that you may have.
Thomas Edison accepts these credits directly from FEMA so there is no hefty re-transcribing cost associated with funneling them through another school.

There are even degrees out there like Emergency Management and some courses from FCC and Clackamas that are done almost entirely with these courses. Once you take the courses, just get the certificates sent to TESC and they'll appear on your transcript at no cost, just like any other transfer credit. Of course you could skip the previous step, but this ensures you have all the time you need to find any questions you aren't sure about.
We can do this by filling out a transcript form at the EMI website and have all the completed courses sent to TESC.
By the time the courses are registered, received, transcribed and a copy of the transcript is sent out, some time may pass.
They actually purchased a women's college back in the late 1970's as a place to educate government officials (male and female) and members of the public on a variety of Emergency Management topics. So if you have 30 credits worth of FEMA courses you'd like transcribed, you're looking at around $2280. Both of these will take approved FEMA courses and put them on a transcript which you can then transfer to Excelsior.
