This course will enable students to develop knowledge and skills required to plan and implement exercise programs for an apparently healthy population and for individuals within selected special populations (such as those with chronic illness and/or disability and for the aged). Exercise prescription principles will be examined in conjunction with evidence based training methods to improve health and performance related to components of physical fitness and wellbeing (including the components of physical function and capacity). Principles of exercise program development will be considered to enable students to develop practical skills in relation to the design and delivery of exercise activities to a range of individuals and groups in diverse exercise settings. The course will take an evidence based approach to exercise prescription and practice to support contemporary exercise methodology including risk assessment and safety considerations for diverse exercise settings.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
