Introduction

Introduction

This course will give you all you need to safely and effectively take your client through the complete MK Pilates Cadillac repertoire in a One to One personal training environment focused on the Studio Cadillac.

We will update your existing repertoire and knowledge then develop your knowledge and skills to include the more challenging and advanced repertoire.

Final Assessment: This course assessment assumes that you have demonstrated teaching skill previously so we now focus on your knowledge of the Cadillac repertoire and your own body. You are asked to complete a 30-45 minute programme using all areas of the Cadillac with a programme suited to your physical abilities and needs. The format can be agreed on an individual student basis but the standard is video submission with a documented self-assessment.

Hours Summary

Studio Equipment Standard Diploma

Studio Equipment Masters & Graduate Diplomas – Cadillac Part 02 Requirements

2 Days: 16 lecture hours,

The same as a Standard Diploma.

The Masters & Graduate Diplomas involve additional specialised education days.  These may not be provided by your elected training centre at this time however all training centres are working towards offering all of the Diploma Content in time.

Self-Study, Personal Practice and a self-practice video for assessment with Workbook Completion - 24 Hours,
Teacher Development - Total 40 Hours

Cadillac Part 01 Certificate valid for 2 years with a requirement for ongoing education to maintain verification with 14 hours Teacher Development Hours each 2 year period. (When enrolled on a Studio Equipment Diploma programme and actively attending the courses your certificate will be renewed automatically.)

Studio Equipment Foundation Diploma:   Some centres have a delivery format that has less Face to Face time due to local considerations.  When this occurs, the extra hours can be accrued through attendance of additional educational events in the subsequent months and years to qualify for the other levels of Diplomas.  Typically, a Foundation Diploma has less observed practice time and fewer tutor led group classes but educational content is not excluded.  In relation to Cadillac typically Part 01 & 02 are combined into fewer hours and does have a reduced repertoire.

Equipment:  It is assumed that any student attending will have reasonable access to a Cadillac or at the least a Wall Unit or Reformer Tower system to consolidate the information gained on the course.

Course Content

Course Content

  • Face to Face Tutor Time – 16 hours
  • Review of Cadillac Part 01 movements and their modifications, purpose of adaptations and progressions for each movement, then add to the repertoire to complete your knowledge to all levels of the movements and their benefits.
  • The key decision making process needed to decide when a more challenging level of movement is relevant to the client and how to prepare and assist the client with the execution of the movement for safety.

  • Formative assessment of the Pilates Lab for your personal development.
  • Complete the MK Pilates Cadillac Part 02 Repertoire as well as how to modify and progress this Repertoire.
  • There will be a focus on the teachers own knowledge of their body and its needs and the ability of the teacher to execute their movements with knowledge and good technique.

Support Materials

  • The student Handbook and Workbook provided as downloadable PDF files to print at your convenience but required to be accessed either digitally or in printed format during your Face to Face tutor time. The Handbook displays versions of the movements with note pages for your completion during and after the education.  The Workbook provides master pages to be used to record and self-assess the students own workout session.  It is recommended you familiarise yourself with this material prior to attendance wherever possible.

Assessment

Assessment

  • Completion of a Workbook documenting and outlining the students personal session. These will include details of the students own postural assessment. Your observations of the documented information is required along with any adaptations or alterations being presented and their reasons along with a final conclusion and future development plan for the students programme.
  • The final practical assessment may vary centre to centre but the standard is to submit a video of the session from beginning to end. No sound is required.
  • Student paperwork must be completed and the tutor will cover this for you. Summarisation of the session along with conclusions must also be completed.
  • Written self-evaluation of your video submission along with any changes you may wish to have made based upon the observation of the video content.
  • The suggested period for the completion of the case study is no later than 3 months from completion of the course. You have one year to successfully complete all assessment processes after which MK Pilates reserve the right to request attendance of elements of the course and may apply charges for this and any re-assessments after the one year period is over.
  • If a Michael King Pilates multiple choice theory paper has not been completed you may be asked to complete this on the second weekend or at another agreed time to achieve your certification. As every situation is individual your Training Centre or Tutor will be able to discuss this with you but MK Pilates Administration will make the final decision as to whether the paper is required.  This element covers general Anatomy and Physiology areas to a Health and Fitness entry level standard of knowledge.

NOTE: the elements of assessment can be worked on consecutively with the assessment processes for any other MK Pilates courses. This is a personal practice assessment as part of your own personal journey with the Pilates Method for your physical needs and goals.  This is not a test of your ability to complete advanced movements.
