This capstone subject requires students to undertake a practicum experience within an exercise or sports work environment. Students will demonstrate the integration and application of evidence-based exercise and sports performance knowledge and skills from two advanced Exercise and Sports Science subjects. They will asssist clients to progressively achieve their exercise or sports performance goals. They will also demonstrate effective communication skills reflective of a professional working in exercise and sports performance.

Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
