Continued education question

do the CE's that you do every year or so to keep a certification, do those actually count toward any real college credit?
I'd like to take a few college classes, but I don't want to have to go through all the testing and stuff. I don't want to have to take math, reading, etc. Just to take a few medical classes, muchless have to pay for all the extra classes.
SO, does anyone know?

  • What are you certified in?? I think classes only count toward a degree if you are matriculated. But, I think you can still take the classes if you need them for CEU's and the org. that over sees your cert will accept them. Check with who ever you are certified thru and the college admissions office where you are looking to take the classes to be sure.

  • If you aren't going for a degree and the classes you want to take don't have pre-reqs that need to be completed first, you should just be able to take them. I've never had any of my CE's count toward my college credits.
