Students will gain knowledge and appropriate skills in screening, assessment, and provision of exercise intervention in multiple applications across the lifespan, including prevention and management of chronic disease(s), workplace conditioning, and sport.
The course prepares graduates to enter the job market as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)
AEPs work across the lifespan of client needs in any environment that requires an allied health professional who can prescribe effective exercise prescription for the management of complex chronic conditions and prevent injury and disease and promote healthy lifestyle factors, such as:
- hospital or community health environments
- private practice
- workplace/industrial settings
- a sport rehabilitation setting

In Brisbane, where the program is commencing in 2018, accreditation will be granted in 2019 - once its first cohort is in its final semester.
