STOTT PILATES is recognized by the American Council on Exercise* as a Continuing Education Specialist. Earn 4.0 ACE CECs for Matwork course. Earn 5.0 CECs for Reformer course

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
