NSU announces January non-credit courses

January Non-Credit

Northwestern State University’s office of Electronic and Continuing Education will offer two non-credit short courses in January.

Playing in the Mud: Beginning Ceramics will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday evenings Jan. 18-March 15. This course is an introduction to working with clay. The student will learn hand-building and sculptural techniques, as well as work on the potter’s wheel. There will also be room for intermediate and advanced students to take the class who want to use the facilities during the class time.

The cost to participate is $150 plus a $20 materials fee paid directly to the instructor on the first night of class. Matt DeFord will be the instructor. The class will be held in Room 207 of the Creative and Performing Arts Building.

Family and Friends CPR course will teach the life-saving skills of adult hands-only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR and mild and severe airway block for adults, children and infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the American Heart Association (AHA) research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family and Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life. A Certificate of Participation will be provided at the end of the course.

The course will be from 4-6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22 in 118 Fournet Hall. Amy M. Garcie, DNP, RN, CNML, will be the instructor. The cost is $10 plus a $5 materials fee.
