The Pilates Instructor Certificate of Achievement prepares the student to teach in a privately owned dance, fitness or Pilates studio, recreational facility, or health club. The student takes theory and technique courses on Pilates apparatus taught by Pilates certified specialists and learns methods to determine appropriate conditioning programs for people of all ages and physical conditions.
To prepare the student for employment, instruction uses both classroom work with a variety of instructional methods (lecture, lab/demonstration, independent and group projects), and internship experiences in dance and fitness facilities.
Upon completion of this certificate the student will be able to:
- Successfully teach a Pilates mat and apparatus class with appropriate modifications.
- Communicate effectively through clear demonstration and verbal cueing using appropriate terminology.
