Re: Patent Bar Expert Needed

This question is far, far better posed directly to USPTO OED. Call them--you'll have to deal with them sooner or later, and theirs is the only opinion that matters.

But be aware of the default presumption that IS courses are not acceptable:

"The following typify courses that are not accepted as demonstrating the necessary scientific and technical training: . . . courses
directed to data management and management information systems." General Requirements Bulletin at 7.

Also, the PTO seems unlikely to give credence to classes whose content isn't apparent from the official course description: "Also not accepted are college research or seminar courses where the course content and requirements are not set forth in the course descriptions." Id.
