DescriptionThe BASI Comprehensive Teachers Training course is the most rigorous in the business, and a student needs to pass all of it in order to be accredited as a teacher by BASI. There are no half-measures. As the term comprehensive implies, this course is NOT splintered into individual apparatus and many levels, as some programs are; it is about the whole. BASI believes that a teacher needs to be familiar with it all. This also avoids confusion for members of the public, who often have to decide between teachers; one, say, who has graduated from level one Reformer and another who has completed a comprehensive Pilates course. They both present themselves as Pilates teachers and both have certificates of completion. But, in the eyes of BASI, there is no comparison. A CTTC graduate has both the knowledge and the accreditation to teach students of all levels on all apparatus. We do not give partial accreditation for a partial education. It may sound severe, but it maintains the extremely high standard of our education and it avoids misinterpretation. There is never any question about what a BASI-trained teacher is, or is not, qualified to teach. There is also a financial dimension. With BASI you know what the cost of the course is right up front; there are no additional requirements or supplementary costs. Compare the cost of our one, comprehensive course with the cumulative costs of all the courses you have to take at other institutes to achieve a similar level of expertise. You’ll be amazed at how reasonable our price really is.

DescriptionThis course is designed to meet the growing demand for Pilates teachers specializing in mat work. Many locations do not have access to Pilates apparatus, yet see the enormous potential of the method. Offering the Mat work is a perfect solution. It is affordable, easy to integrate into many different settings and introduces people to the foundation of Pilates. There is no part of the Pilates system that exemplifies the principles of the method, particularly flow, quite as well as the Mat work. Students study the full complement of Mat Work exercises and the integration of small apparatus into the Mat program. BASI encourages students who master this program to use it as a springboard to the Comprehensive Teacher Training Program.

Don’t plan on ever being able to test out and get a job. Basi only offers certification tests twice a year, which book up 6 months out. The problem being that by the time they list the test date/location on the website, it is already booked and they do not expand to meet the demand. I finished the training almost two years ago and every time I try to register for a test date, they say it is full, put me on a wait list to see if anyone cancels which no one does. Then ask if I can register for the next date in 6 months, they reply “we are not booking yet, try back again”. WTF
I don’t understand the business logic behind not wanting to have more test dates or locations. Students have to pay to take the test, do they not want to make money?
BASI Pilates (BASI) Response on Aug 09, 2013:
I cannot express how disappointed I was to read this comment. BASI prides itself in taking care of the needs of our students. Learning that someone (anyone) has been unsuccessful in arranging testing for two years is absolutely shocking. We implemented Centralized Testing in January 2011 to not only uphold an educational standard, but to raise that standard. In addition, standardization of testing procedures eliminated any discrepancies between examiners (hence, only Rael and myself at th... more less
