STOTT PILATES certification shows clients and employers that you are a well-qualified professional. At the conclusion of each course, you receive a letter of completion and continuing education credits. STOTT PILATES certification is awarded upon successful completion of a course plus a written and practical exam. Exam material is cumulative so students can certify in stages by taking an exam after each course or after a series of courses, e.g. students certified in Matwork must take a combined Matwork and Reformer exam should they wish to subsequently certify in Reformer. This also applies to students certified in Reformer who wish to move on to CCB certification.
Please note that exams must be taken within six months of the last course completed and that there is a fee associated with each exam. Successful completion of Matwork; Reformer; Cadillac, Chair & Barrels; Advanced Repertoire; ISP courses and exams are required for full certification.
To maintain certification and stay up-to-date on skills and programming techniques, STOTT PILATES has implemented a Continuing Education Credit (CEC) program for certified instructors. Click here to learn more about CEC workshops.
Our programs provide a balanced and thorough blend of theory, observation and
practical experience to help you master the repertoire. In each course, you learn:
How to apply STOTT PILATES biomechanical principles of core stability, breathing and alignment to all exercises
A complete breakdown of each exercise
Exercise goals, muscular initiation and movement sequencing
Modifications to increase or decrease exercise intensity
Modifications for specific body types and postural issues
How to recognize optimal and less than optimal movement patterns
A variety of programming options to keep clients motivated
Effective communication, verbal cues and imagery for performance enhancement and client motivation
A minimum number of hours of observation, practice teaching and physical review are required for all courses and should be completed between instructed sessions at any STOTT PILATES facility. Additional training may be required to prepare for certification.
Observation includes watching sessions taught by a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor or relevant STOTT PILATES videos. Practice teaching hours can be fulfilled by instructing family, fellow students, friends or clients.
A physical review means physically performing the exercises learned in class. Taking a class with a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor or working out with a video can qualify as physical review hours, and can be completed individually or with other students.
Practice teaching and physical review hours must be logged outside of class time and submitted at the time of the practical exam.
