Students will gain knowledge in fitness, health and research appraisal. Emphasis will be given to validity and reliability of various assessments and factors involved in the assessment of performance and health assessment. Prerequisites: KIN 200 and KIN 109, or KIN 309 or STAT 141 or 151. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 311 or PEDS 311.
An introduction to human physiology from the cellular to systemic level with special emphasis on systems that adapt to exercise stress. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 101 or PEDS 101.
Explores selected issues of work physiology related to emergency response occupations with the main emphasis on fire fighting. Topics will include: human rights legislation and policies related to bona fide occupational requirements; the assessment of workload; the physiological limitations to work capacity; the development and implementation of physical fitness testing programs for applicants and incumbents; and, the development and monitoring of fitness training programs related to work demands. Prerequisite: KIN 335. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 411 or PEDS 411.
An introduction to acute physiological responses to exercise and chronic adaptations to training. Prerequisite: KIN 101. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 200 or PEDS 200.
Introduction to integrative human physiology. Focuses on the regulation, control, and integration of cellular functions in the human body with special emphasis on systems that respond to exercise stress. Prerequisite: KIN 101. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 101 or PEDS 101.
