BIG NEWS for the Pilates Community Today!
Pilates Method Alliance
Receives Accreditation of its PMA Pilates Certification Program from the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA)
This is a fantastic step forward and the PMA has been working long and hard for many years to establish standards for our industry. Congratulations to the PMA and Thank-you for your hard work and dedication to bringing the Pilates community together and helping to establish core-competency standards for the education of Pilates teachers.
An NCCA Accredited Certification Program for Pilates helps take the credibility of the value Pilates training has to offer to the next level, and will continue to boost client confidence as customers request to work with PMA-Certified Pilates teachers. It’s important that people know they are maximizing the benefits of their investment in whole-body health improvement and can be confident that they are being instructed by true professionals with the knowledge and expertise to develop safe & effective Pilates training programs.
There are many Pilates Teacher-Training programs available that offer the education and hours required to gain the knowledge and expertise to pass the PMA Pilates Certification Exam. Accreditation of the PMA Exam by the NCCA means that regardless of your Pilates Teacher-Training provider, IF they have done a good job helping teachers-in-training gain the skills, knowledge, and expertise to be a Pilates Teacher – sitting for and passing the PMA Certification Exam, represents to the world that they have studied well, completed a reputable program, and have the skills and competency to help clients stay safe and improve their health while teaching Pilates.
Currently not all Pilates Teachers are PMA members, or PMA certified! I hope with the NCCA Accreditation approval, more will join forces with the PMA to clearly show to the world that the Pilates community supports setting its own standards for safety & proficiency. We need to demonstrate the importance of a great education to become a valuable expert and proudly be a Pilates professional in our industry.
Congratulations to the Pilates Method Alliance for achieving this recognition and approval from the National Commission for Certifying Agencies!
