Let NFA help you pursue your degree
NFA courses are equivalent in difficulty to college- and university-level courses and can be considered for college credit. We award CEUs and our courses have been evaluated and recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education.
Self-study, instructor-led and live courses
Online learning is a terrific option if you want to take NFA courses. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for most courses. Successful completion is added to your NFA transcript and you earn an NFA certificate.
