Pilates is a popular training form because it helps the body become more balanced and flexible and it also helps with overall conditioning and endurance. Throughout this course, students will learn how to deliver a correct Pilates mat based session to their clients.
Who is it for?
The Pilates Instructor course is aimed at all individuals aged 16 or over who would like to focus their career on teaching Pilates. In the past, we have had a lot of exercise to music instructors that have taken the course in order to help their clients with posture and strength.
Discovery Learning’s Pilates inspired mat work course will enable personal trainers to bolt on a 4-day module in the discipline of instructing Pilates mat work to groups in a gym/ health club setting.
Part-time study will require a 6-week home study followed by 4 full days of attendance during 2 weekends.
The course is delivered over 2 full weekends with 4-6 weeks between each weekend.
If you are not currently a fitness professional, you will need to complete 4 mandatory units as home study prior to attending the first weekend which takes approximately 6 weeks of home study/ portfolio work. This includes sitting 2 theory exams (L3 anatomy and physiology and L2 principles of exercise and fitness) and completing 2 worksheets from inside the assessment portfolio (know how to support your clients and health, safety and client welfare).
If you are already a personal trainer with a current valid qualification (from the year 2010 or more recent) you have an exemption from these 4 units upon presenting valid and current certificates as evidence of your prior learning.
The Discovery Learning Pilates teacher training course is made of internal and external examination papers, client interview training, coursework and practical observations. There will be at least one assessment for each module with a six-part assessment schedule for module six.
Finally, there is a choice now of submitting a video assessment of practical teaching, in which students film themselves demonstrating Pilates exercises as they would in a Pilates group session and then send it to our assessment board for review OR attending a practical assessment day 4-6 weeks after the course.
What certificates will I receive?
Active IQ Pilates instructor certificate. If the student is a REPs member, the REPs insurance will cover them to teach Pilates.
What support will I get?
While studying the Pilates instructor course with Discovery Learning, you will have full access to our online learning platform that includes video tutorials, images, manuals and mock exam papers. You will also benefit from our Student Support team who are here to help via phone or email.
