About Credit for Prior Learning

​​​​​CFTEA offers courses that may apply for college credits and toward annual professional developments skills.  Our CFTEA powered by MindEdge courses have direct nationally recognized professional development credits.  Now, ACE credits are back from ABA (American Bankers Association).

Many colleges and universities evaluate the college-level knowledge and skills an individual has gained outside of the classroom for college credit. This evaluation is called credit for prior learning, but it may also be referred to as a prior learning assessment or experiential learning. There are many programs and services available to help you earn credit for your workplace training, military service, and other experiential learning and apply it to a degree program.

Examples of prior learning include:

  • workplace training
  • military training and service
  • independent study
  • professional certifications
  • examinations (national exams)
  • civic activities
  • volunteer service
