Great, that's two cheap courses that I am interested in taking... I also want to take the Basic Property Technician course.

I couldn’t find AOJ-340 in the course catalog. Am I blind? Just trying to figure out if this would end up coming in as a free elective or an AOS elective for me.

TESU only had courses they actually offer listed in their catalog I believe. You could probably find it in their PLA database though
In Progress: MS Cybersecurity, Georgia Tech (9/32cr), 2021?
BS IT Security, Western Governors University, 2018
BA Psychology, Thomas Edison State University, 2016
AA Sociology, Chaffey College, 2015

If TESU doesn't offer a particular course and it isn't a course they have evaluated previously as either a PLA or transfer, they will just assign it a new number and add it to their equivalency database.

So for common courses, you will probably find them in the TESU catalog or PLA database, but for non-so-common courses, you won't know what they come in as until someone submits a transcript and has it evaluated and assigned an equivalency.

I’m going to take it. I need a break from SDC anyway. I took 10 exams last month and Mint (financial tracking app) was like.. “woah, lady. I don’t know who you think you are but settle down with these purchases.” So I’ll trick it by spending money elsewhere! ?

I just finished the Basic Property Technician Course. Did I just get 3 credits for playing a video game for a couple of hours? That's definitely what it felt like.

The only thing that was a bit confusing was the reference material. I got 4 questions wrong on the final and I still have no idea what the answers were because it wasn't clear.

Already added it to my ACE transcript and ACE approved it in about 20 minutes. I'm not sure when I'm going to send another ACE transcript to TESU since I just did one last week for my CSMlearn course and haven't had that added to my evaluation yet but I'll report back what it comes in as.

Just finished the Basic Criminal Investigation course. Under the ACE recomendation for 2 LL credits in Criminal Justice or Criminal Investigations. The course was $75. It consisted of a pre-test that did not count towards your grade, 6 modules, and a post-test that must be passed with at least a 75%. You have three tries to pass the post-test.
Overall I found this to be an interesting course, if you have any previous knowledge of investigations or police work, this should be a cake walk for you.

Did you transfer these to TESU? If so, what did they come in as? I was thinking about taking it but taking an extra SDC course during my monthly subscription would net 3 credits for $5 less.
