Important Information about Pilates Teacher Certification

Certification vs Assessment-Based Certificate as defined by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies NCCA.

Certification is a voluntary process by which individuals are assessed against predetermined standards for knowledge/skills/competencies and granted a time-limited credential. The primary activity in certification is assessment, and the assessment process is independent of a specific course of study or any education/course/curriculum provider. The Pilates Method Alliance is the only  third-party, NCCA recognized Pilates Certification in the world.

An Assessment-Base Certificate program is a relatively short, non-degree granting program that provides instruction and training to aid participants in acquiring knowledge/skills/competencies and designates that participants have passed and end-of-program learning/course objectives. Although assessment is an integral part of PIA certificate programs, the primary purpose our program is to provide instruction and training.
