Professional Strand

The professional strand consists of two units of study. It provides the basis for the advanced knowledge and skills needed for the development of ethical and professional counselling and clinical practices.

Discipline Strand

This strand consists of four units of study, which provide the underlying knowledge for analysis, prescription and rehabilitation relevant to musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory and neurological functions, as well as advanced strength and conditioning.

(Note: It will be necessary for students to complete additional professionally supervised fieldwork concurrently to enable the application to AAESS for accreditation as a specialised practitioner).
