Hi Bev. It is suggested to take the Basic compulsory courses (Meth 1&2; Using Internet; and Transcribing) and then start the country-themed courses: Census & Vital Records (basic for all research). Land & Religious Records cover more in-depth concepts. It's good to have the others completed first. AS1 should be after the main courses as it covers material from the basic courses. Look at it as an overview of the Basic Level to prepare you for starting the Intermediate courses. It can be opened before the others are completed, but don't open it too soon.

I'm going to ask in First Timer FAQs as well.

Comment by Bev Diaz on March 25, 2021 at 1:24pm

Is there a post somewhere of the recommended order of courses, both for prerequisite purposes for the compulsory courses, and guidance with the elective courses? I know we don't HAVE to do it any particular way, but it would help plan to see something that says "think about doing x and y before taking z class".

I do know that when I tried to sign up for "Skills: Transcribing, Abstracting & Extracting" the page mentioned you should have taken Met 1 and Met 2 first. However, I'm referring to some kind of master list or flowchart. Or even just a list of which electives are Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced level courses, without having to click through every course offered. 

Also, I was reading the posts in the NIGS FB group and someone further along than I mentioned it's better to take Analysis & Skills Courses at the end of the level. That's the kind of stuff I would like to know about.

Thanks!
