Introduction

With MK Pilates, we categorise any student who holds one of the Diplomas listed below as a Comprehensive Student of our Certifications in Pilates Studio Apparatus.

We offer three different levels of our Studio Apparatus Diploma Qualification depending upon which MK Pilates Training Centre you work with.  These are identified by the hours of attendance of each course.  They are named as follows:

  • Silver Apparatus Diploma (295 hours Teacher Development Credit)
  • Gold Elite Apparatus Diploma (345 hours Teacher Development Credit)

All three Diploma formats assume prior knowledge in Pilates Matwork through Matwork Certifications.

The Gold Elite Apparatus Diploma includes 10 days of further educational content giving a further 115 hours of Teacher Development Credit.

Our Silver Apparatus Diploma is our main Studio Apparatus Certification and consists of our Seven Individual Apparatus Certifications as detailed below. Each of the Reformer certifications consists of 4 days of education in either a modular, typically 2 x 2 days, or as a 4 day intensive event format for delivery. The Cadillac Course are 2 days each and again can be split but typically are presented in one weekend each. The three other pieces of traditional apparatus included in our Diplomas are each a one day certification. This result is 15 days of Face to Face tutor led time, and along with your home study time, personal practice hours, and all Assessment processes. This programme provides you with our maximum credit of educational development hours for Pilates Studio Apparatus.

Our Gold Elite Apparatus Diplomas not only offer the Silver Apparatus Diploma content but also our five Functional Anatomy one day courses, as well as three Matwork small equipment one day courses and two special populations days. The details of these are available below by clicking on the button. If you have already completed these as part of your Matwork Diploma Programme they are of course automatically credited to your Studio Apparatus Gold Elite Diploma.

We feel that all instructors should be able to manage many different clients with different and challenging physical needs and it is through the additional courses we bring more education to you that address these needs.

It may take several years to achieve this level of qualification as many students who start with us on a Silver Apparatus Diploma continue with the education and reach Gold Elite Level in their own timeframe.

A Master Apparatus Diploma is not scheduled as one series of dates. It can be achieved in pieces and elements such as small equipment or anatomy can be attended even before a Silver Apparatus Diploma is completed. Please have a look at our DIARY, consult with your Training Centre or through our website for further education or guidance with your training Pathway choices.
