The program consists of 40 hours of training over a period of ten days. It will be conducted in April of each year until Academic Year 2020-2021. The first batch of UniSA interns witnessed the formalization of the program through the memorandum signing at the office of UPD Chancellor Michael Tan.

CHK Dean Francis Carlos Diaz revealed that the current program is just the initial phase of the College’s partnership with UniSA. “I am optimistic about the outcome of this program,” he said, adding that CHK looked forward to eventually sending their sports science majors for training in UniSA.
