Introduction

The College of Security (COS) courses focus on expanding a student's knowledge of security operations in the Star Trek Universe as well as real-life convention security procedures. The courses also promote awareness and appreciation for the duties and responsibilities that real-life law enforcement entails.

Important: It is vital that you make sure you keep a copy of your results and certificate as proof of completing COS. Do not rely on the STARFLEET Database or anyone else to verify that you have completed COS or any other Academy course. The burden of proof is upon you, the student.

For any of the courses in the FAC Program, you can register, view or download the course manual (if applicable), take the course examination, and have a customized diploma presented to you...all online.


Special Note for the FAC Program

FAC graduates are not automatically entered into the STARFLEET Database. They are reviewed by the College Director prior to being entered to ensure accuracy and eligibility. All students should check the STARFLEET Database approximately one week after successfully completing the course, if they have not received an email from the Database stating their course completion has been entered. If the course is not listed in the Database after one week, please contact the College Director.
