Has anyone taken Edukan Microbiology 280? Or know anything about taking it as an out of district student?
My question is about the Cooperating lab and lab instructor requirement. I found an old post where someone mentioned taking the course and doing the lab from a distance BUT that person mentioned that they knew someone who worked at suitable lab site, so they had no difficulty gaining permission.
I work at a hospital (medical lab in a hospital is considered acceptable) and am still affiliated with the university that I graduated from so I could ask someone in the bio dept. there if they could help me.
So...has anyone been successful in getting permission to use a local lab and having someone from the lab volunteer to be an instructor for the 2 labs? And from what I understand, this instructor has to make contact with the micro. prof. and verify their credentials. This seems to be asking a lot from someone you don't know don't ya think?
I was hoping to take micro through edukan because it's only $625.00, whereas the micro course through ccconline is $901.60 plus the lab pak which is $240.00. That's a $516.60 difference!
I'm going to email the edukan micro professor and ask him more about how others have managed this situation. But in the meantime if ANYONE has any info. please post.
