The course packet is used to report data on the courses offered by each provider. Each course packet must be linked to an established course of study packet. The data collected through a course packet may be referenced by one or more:
The course fields of education (CFE) packet is used to report changes through time to the fields of education for a given course. The first CFE packet for a course is created as part of the course packet. A provider may create as many additional CFE packets as necessary to report changes to the fields of education for a course through time.
The special interest course (SIC) packet is used to report changes through time to the special course type (E312) for a given course. A SIC packet for a course will be created as part of the course packet if the provider reports a value for the special interest type when the course packet is established. Otherwise, a provider may create a SIC packet later and can create as many SIC packets as necessary to report changes to the SIC information for a course through time.
