About the NCPACE Distance Learning (DL) Program
DL NCPACE, sometimes referred to as "technology Delivered" NCPACE, is provided by ten colleges and universities. Collectively, they offer over many courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Several associate degrees, bachelor's degrees and a few masters degrees are available through Distance Learning NCPACE. Each institution has helpful degree maps outlining degree objectives.
DL NCPACE is delivered primarily using self-paced CD-ROM and MP4 technology formats since afloat conditions aboard deployed vessels preclude reliable and consistent Internet access.
DL NCPACE is offered as an alternative to Instructor Led NCPACE for those Sailors who cannot attend regularly scheduled classroom format or those Sailors who desire the convenience of a self-paced study environment. First-time students taking college courses should consider taking a traditional instructor led class before attempting a distance learning course.
