The APEA teacher training program recognises and welcomes people certified through other reputable Pilates organisations who desire certification in Authentic Pilates Education.
Every approach is different. The APEA bridging candidates will join the basic, intermediate and advanced workshops however apprentice hrs will be modified to suit the individual’s needs, knowledge and work progress. Most bridging candidates will need between 200 to 300hrs before completing the advanced exam.
NB: Where the assessment determines the candidate requires more than 300 apprenticeship hours, they will need to apply for full certification.
At least two practical exams will be administered at times determined by the Principal Instructor Trainer, and there will be a final oral, practical, and written exam once all hours have been completed.
All exams must be passed to achieve certification.
All practical retests shall be given at a cost of $150.00;
If the final exam is not passed, up to 25 hours of apprenticeship shall be required before the exam is retaken.
Bridging program fee structure:
200 – 300 hours, tuition fee $3,500.00 plus up to 50 private lessons at a reduced rate i.e. $70 per session with the APEA Principal Instructor Trainer or other.
