VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- The Center for Security Forces (CENSECFOR) announced July 15 that the American Council on Education (ACE) now recommends college credits for all four of its riverine courses.

In April 2010, ACE conducted extensive reviews for new riverine courses that have emerged in the post-9/11 era, as well as other courses that had reached their periodic review anniversary.

"It was gratifying to see all the hard work involved with establishing formal riverine training earn a recommended 25 college credits," said Roy Wilde, learning standards officer at CENSECFOR.

ACE provides recommended college credits for members of the Armed Forces that are commensurate to their military training and experience.

"Best of all, individuals that graduated any one of the four riverine courses on or after April 1 are eligible for the recommended college credits," said Wilde.

Additional courses reviewed by ACE that received recommended credits are the level two coxswain operations and tactics course, brig afloat course and Navy corrections counselor and Navy corrections specialist courses.
