An extension of BPK 143, Exercise: Health and Performance, designed to provide students with an opportunity to appreciate principles of exercise leadership, assess individual fitness needs, design programs and monitor effects of prescribed exercise. The course includes a 34 hour unpaid practicum with an industry partner. The partner may require the student to enter into (1) a confidentiality agreement and (2) an Intellectual property agreement the result of which will be that the SFU Intellectual Policy R 30.03 will not apply to the intellectual property created by the student during the practicum. By registering for the course, each student acknowledges that it is aware of these requirements and understands that their entering into these agreements may be a requirement to complete the applicable course work. BPK major and honours students who have taken BPK 342 must also take BPK 343. For students taking both of these courses, credit will only be given for BPK 343. Quantitative.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
