what are some other benefits to correspondence courses, other then the obvious E5/E6 promotion points? Personally, I feel that if you put the hours of actually learning the material, it could be very useful. I have been taking some of the 1 hour courses in business, just to help prepare for my degree courses. Has anybody heard of course hours helping on an E7 boards, or putting the courses on a resume when you are out? I'd like to be able to say they are worth more than just promotion points.

I have used some of those courses on my resume in the past when they pertained to the job that I was seeking but that was a long time ago. The main benefit that I get from them is personal satisfaction. I have always just liked going to school and taking classes. I started taking correspondence courses in the sixties, later changed to online courses and have never stopped. I love them. For those interested in a career in law enforcement and/or contract security there are a ton on online coursed available for free. Some will verify your employment but most don't. I have taken courses from FEMA, the National FIre Academy, The Dept. of Justice and the Dept. of Homeland Security which at the time did pertain to my job and were mostly free. Currently I am taking courses from Hillsdale College in history, government and economics. All free. You can never gain too much knowledge and whatever you are interested in you can find an online course.
