Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
perform a comprehensive initial client consultation that is inclusive to the needs of the individual
design appropriate exercise and sport assessment protocols and evaluate their risks for healthy individuals
deliver safe and effective sport and exercise assessments suitable for healthy individuals
