Practicum with Low Risk Clients - EXSS3052

Year - 2020

This unit will engage students in practical experiences relevant to exercise science and Exercise Physiology. These practical experiences will reinforce theoretical knowledge and skills acquired through university studies. Students will complete at least 140 hours of supervised practicum in relevant areas such as design, delivery and evaluation of exercise interventions for healthy, low risk populations. Prior to undertaking an off-campus allocated placement, students participate in an on-campus placement, which allows them to build their skill and confidence.
