Brief Overview

The Energy Academic Group's Distributed Learning (DL) Certificate Program in Energy is designed to support the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Navy's Energy goals. The DL Energy Certificate provides those working military and civilian employees of the Department of Defense the opportunity to understand the complex issues facing the Operational and Installation Energy segments of DoD.

The Certificate program is designed to expose students to the technical, operational, and security aspects of DoD energy needs. Courses are offered via web-based medium on a schedule of one course per quarter for four quarters.

The Certificate requires successful completion of four graduate DL courses (minimum of 16 credit hours). Any of the four courses can be substituted with the corresponding NPS resident course. The Energy Academic Group Academic Associate may also approve a resident course that is identified as an elective in the Resident Certificate Program as a substitute for a DL course.

Courses are offered via web-based medium on a schedule of one course per quarter for four quarters.   OS3613 is designed to be more accessible for DL students without the technical prerequisites of OA4613, delivered as a (3-0) credit hour course, with a syllabus tailored for delivery via asynchronous distance learning.
