A:Is this a college course? Yes it is. The course is a joint venture of Electrical Contractor magazine and Iowa State University (College of Engineering, Dept. of Continuing Education). Electrical Contractor magazine is covering the course in a twelve-part series of articles. How Does The Course Work? This course is conducted completely by correspondence. You will get all of your lessons by US mail, along with the textbook and exercises, about two weeks after you register. (The cost of the textbook is included in the course fee.) After you complete your lessons, send them back to the instructor. He will grade your papers and send you the results. How Long Does It Take? There are twelve lessons in the course, and most students spend between two and six hours on each lesson. However, how quickly you complete the course depends on you. Do I Get Some Type Of Credit? When you complete the course, you will receive a certificate of completion from Iowa State University, along with 6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). All segments of the course must be completed to gain the CEU credit for the series; partial credit will not be awarded. The credits will be permanently recorded by the Department of Extended and Continuing Education. Each person who earns credit will receive a certificate of completion from Iowa State University.
