Non-Credit Instruction Class

Non-credit instruction through the ETSU Campus Recreation department consists of various classes and workshops for the ETSU Community that are not for academic credit. However, in many cases upon successful completion of a course and its requirements, a certification will be granted. For most classes there will be a fee to register, which covers the cost of instruction and/or materials. Types of classes include, but are not limited to CPR/AED, First Aid, Lifeguard, Kayak Roll School, Climbing Wall Instructor, Wilderness First Aid and various types of Group Fitness certifications.
