I am familiar with NCCA accreditation with respect to group-ex and personal training certifications. However, I’m not familiar with the pilates segment of the fitness industry. If you’re a pilates instructor, can you please tell me how important PMA accreditation is to you and to your ability to get work?
So, I finished my first reformer training with 25 hours of in-person education, 20-hours of private instruction, a written exam and a practical exam. For the moves we were taught, I feel very comfortable with the movements, the cues, the corrections, and my ability to teach them. I would like to find out more about the PMA in the future, but I’ve been hired to teach beginning pilates and private sessions and feel quite well prepared.
