AI Placement Program

Athletic Institute’s Placement Program is a specialised program for dedicated and motivated students or graduates looking for hands-on experience in the areas of health, fitness, strength and conditioning, and performance coaching.

AI Placement Program is an unpaid position that runs for durations of up to 9 months or until the Placement Program is ceased, terminated, or completed. Our program involves 12 mandatory workshops of practical and theoretical concepts as well as coaching, programming and periodisation techniques with an emphasis on the fundamentals of exercise science.

Among other learning processes, students will also be expected to complete data entry, program design, FMS screening, and engage in athlete and client mentoring. A minimum of six hours of onsite assistant work is required per week (excluding the mandatory workshop). At the completion of the Placement Program, students should be sufficient in the areas of fundamental exercise techniques, testing and assessing all populations, program design, and have built a base foundation coaching philosophy.

Athletic Institute accepts students from WA-based universities, in particular those institutions with whom we have built independent recognition and professional relationships (Edith Cowan University, Curtin University, Murdoch University and The University of Western Australia). We accept students of all faculties and disciplines in the realm of Sports, Exercise, Health & Medical Sciences inclusive of, but not limited to: Exercise Physiology, Exercise Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy and Health Science. We do this with the ambition to share and learn – we believe in a unification of professional bodies in which students and professionals can develop inter-professional communication, collaboration, and teamwork.
