Intermediate Program

Overview:

The Intermediate Teacher Training Program is 450 hours and can be done in 9 months. Students can attend this program locally or long distance. Upon completing the program students will be proficient performing up to an Intermediate/Advanced level and teaching the intermediate level of classical Pilates repertoire on all pieces of equipment. It is our belief that you must be proficient with the full body of work to fully understand how it can enhance a client’s movement and health. Upon completion of all requirements of the program, participants receive an Intermediate Teacher Training Certificate of Completion and meet eligibility requirements to take the PMA Certification Exam (this can be done through the Pilates Method Alliance).

[lollum_list] [lollum_list_element]New Student Orientation – 1.5 hours[/lollum_list_element] [lollum_list_element]Advising Hours: Q&A – 1.5 hours[/lollum_list_element] [/lollum_list]

Formal Lectures – 120 hours

All students must attend the Formal Lecture Series (60 hrs) once during their program. The Formal Lecture Series: Weekends I – IV is offered twice a year at The Pilates Center. Students have the option to attend the lectures live at The Pilates Center (or a TPC Licensed Studio), or online through our online teacher training program, or students can complete a combination of live and online lectures. The lectures need to be taken in order.

Advisor Meetings – 3 hours

All students are assigned an Advisor at The Pilates Center. If a student is completing the program long distance, they can use a Host Advisor (if there is one located in their area) instead of a teacher located at TPC. Students are only assigned one Advisor during the program. These appointments are built into the program for Advisors to periodically watch the student teach practice clients and give feedback, and to check in with the students regarding their progress.

Internship – 374 hours

Internship hours can be completed at or outside of The Pilates Center. If students are completing their internship hours outside of TPC, they must work with a TPC graduate, Host Advisor, and/or Licensed Teacher Trainer to complete the Observation and Lesson hours. This will ensure successful graduation from the program. If hours are completed outside of The Pilates Center, they may be required by their local studio to pay an additional fee to observe, practice teach, and complete their personal workouts on their equipment. All students are required to have student liability insurance.

Program Schedule:

The Pilates Center Intermediate Teacher Training Program is nine months long. It requires a minimum of one trip to Boulder, Colorado to complete the program. Students will need to dedicate a minimum of 15 – 18 hours per week to their Internship.

Monthly extensions can be purchased for $175 per month to extend the program. All students have the option to put their program on hold once for up to one year during their program at no additional cost. This means that the program will be halted until the student returns and no hours completed while on hold will count towards the required internship hours.

Long distance students can choose to travel to Boulder three times during their 9 months to attend the Formal Lecture Series live. Two of the trips are 10 days long so that the student can attend weekends back to back and allow time for internship hours at TPC in between the lectures. The final trip is to complete the final exams, so this trip can be shorter than the 10 days. Students have the option to take all required lectures online instead of traveling to Boulder if they are working with a Host Advisor. This option can still be available to a student without a Host Advisor in their area but this needs to be discussed with the Director of Education. All students must come to The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO to complete their final exams. If a student only plans to come once, it is encouraged to visit for at least 5 days to get acclimated to the studio prior to taking exams.

Long distance students will need to plan to send in videos of themselves teaching and performing Pilates periodically throughout the program for feedback; as shown on the Trainee Schedule. This is true even if a student is working with a Host Advisor. It is encouraged for all students to film their lessons with TPC teachers to help them progress through the program. This is especially true for long distance students.
