Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the following is essential:

planning and conducting endurance training programs that meet the specific needs of individuals, groups or sports

applying effective communication techniques to instruct, monitor, motivate and evaluate multiple endurance training programs

selecting, sequencing and monitoring the safe and appropriate use of a range of current equipment in endurance training.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

Assessment must ensure:

demonstration of skills to plan and instruct endurance training sessions within an environment with appropriate facilities, equipment and materials such as free weight or hydraulic equipment .

Assessment must also ensure access to:

access to a range of clients with real or simulated fitness goals

access to documentation such as manufacturer specifications for equipment use.

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

observation of interaction with a range of clients, including conveying information for safe participation in endurance training sessions and motivating clients to achieve desired outcomes

oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of physiological, psychological and biomechanical changes that occur during endurance training

oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of body systems, bones, joints and muscles and their relationship to effective exercise

third-party reports from a supervisor detailing work performance.

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended.

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

Required skills

planning and organising skills to:

sequence sessions within the program

ensure required equipment is available and functional

literacy and numeracy skills to enable accurate documentation of program schedules and the timely completion of sessions.

Required knowledge

the major body systems, bones, joints muscles and their function to enable the selection, instruction and adjustment of appropriate exercises to meet the needs of clients

organisational policies and procedures and legislation and regulatory requirements to enable the safe delivery of endurance training programs including the safe use of equipment and a safe learning environment

motivational techniques to provide appropriate encouragement to clients to maximise program adherence

principles of exercise planning to enable a range of activities appropriate to different client goals to be incorporated into the endurance training program to maximise client success
