The Pilates Teacher Association and 3 members are part of The Chartered Institute of Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) Professional development Committee for Pilates.  Part of the work includes review of the current Level 3 Pilates based Mat standards.   The Pilates community raised concerns earlier this year when short endorsed CPD courses appeared to be shortcutting the regulated Mat standards to qualify learners as Mat teachers.  The PTA expressed the concerns formally to CIMSPA and we fully support their statement which says “ …Training Providers should not advertise that their CPD courses allow graduates to become Pilates instructors or teachers. 
We look forward to the continuing discussions.
