Education Credits

The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT) connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside traditional degree programs.

Anyone who successfully completes training that has an ACE credit recommendation can join the ACE CREDIT Registry and Transcript Service and request an official transcript.
