All Fully Qualified APPI Pilates Instructors have undergone comprehensive training with an internationally recognised Pilates Institute and successfully passed written and practical exams.
To become an APPI Certified Pilates Instructor you must hold a Physiotherapy (or equivalent health degree). This prerequisite means that your APPI Pilates Instructor has undergone degree level training in the field of allied health.
As part of their training your APPI Certified Pilates Instructor would have completed face-to-face hands on learning. This includes the participation of Pilates classes, assessment workshops, case study workshops, research reviews and lectures. Your instructor would have also completed home-based training including over 150 hours of self practice, practice teaching, research reviews and participation of classes. On top of this your instructor would have completed a written and practical examination.
Only APPI Certified Pilates Instructors are able to use the internationally recognised APPI Pilates Logo. This is to give you, the client the knowledge that your instructor has undergone their full training and passed all examinations.
APPI Certified Pilates Instructors are required to complete 8 hours of Pilates related CPD each year to continually update their knowledge and skills. Evidence must be supplied to us of their CPD and we recommend for instructors to use our free CPD tracker download. CPD hours can include the attendance of a face-to-face Pilates course/workshop and an online Pilates course/workshop.
