Special notes

1   Definitions
    Exercise Technique is how an exercise is done including the form the body takes when
    doing that exercise.
    Exercise Pattern is the repetition of a technique to the beat of the music.
    Choreography refers to how a series of exercises are performed and linked together
    to create an exercise routine.
    The key joints involved in a movement are those that the active muscle group spans
    and therefore acts across. For example, in the lunge it would be the hip joint and
    knee joint.




                                                                 New Zealand Qualifications Authority 2010

                                                                                         Page 2 of 5

2     In elements 1 and 2 where the exercise technique is actually a warm-up for other
      techniques or does not require a warm-up due to its simplicity or low intensity, the
      candidate is considered competent where they correctly identify that a specific warm-
      up for the technique is not required.
      In element 4 the exercise techniques must be demonstrated whilst the candidate is
      instructing a class of at least five participants.

Please note

Providers must be accredited by the Qualifications Authority, or an inter-institutional body
with delegated authority for quality assurance, before they can report credits from
assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

Industry Training Organisations must be accredited by the Qualifications Authority before
they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.

Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards
must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.

Accreditation requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this
standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The
AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations
wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for
tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
