Welllllllllll, if you already had all of the certs (16 units by my estimation), you would still need to earn 20 more including 4 for your capstone project. As pointed out in a previous post, those other 20 units will involve lots and lots of writing. I don't know of a mechanism to get transfer credit for those other units.

For example, a couple of my papers have had a point deducted for APA citing errors but specific feedback wasn't provided. I could have pressed the issue but never bothered. I read the assignment, study the grading rubric, and structure my assignment based on the rubric. I have almost always scored top or high marks (I did flub a leadership paper based on a faulty premise which carried throughout the paper. Once I fixed that and resubmitted, I received a good mark).
My course mentors have all had at least a master's degree and based on their presentations and a few conversations, everyone seemed knowledgeable about their respective subjects. My program mentor (more of an academic advisor than a subject matter expert) is very customer focused and we speak weekly about my progress, issues, questions, or whatever. If I need help, she'll make sure I'll get it.
I certainly think a 12 month time period would be possible.
