What is the difference between classical and clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates tends to have more of a focus on rehabilitation, and is often used in a clinical/therapeutic setting.
Classical Pilates tends to have more of a focus on physical fitness, and is therefore not primarily used in a clinical/therapeutic setting.
Both clinical and classical Pilates practitioners have good grounding in injury prevention; clinical Pilates practitioners have further training beyond the scope of Pilates (such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, etc), which allows them further insight for rehabilitation.
Why should I enroll in a course with Calibrate Pilates?
Clinical Pilates courses provide you with many extra tools for improving patient outcomes:
Assessing and treating movement through whole-body integration.
Utilising adaptive and assistive devices to re-train motor patterning.
Utilising equipment to afford dynamic challenges to the body improved patient awareness.
Improved non-verbal communication.
Why should I choose Calibrate Pilates courses over other Pilates training courses?
Many other Pilates training courses require participants to work through many “levels” before they are eligible to undertake Pilates training for rehabilitation.
Calibrate Clinical Pilates Education courses integrate clinical scenarios into the curriculum from day one, ensuring that the course is immediately relevant to you.
What if I don’t have a background in therapy?
The Introductory and Comprehensive Clinical Pilates Training courses assume a tertiary level of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, and are therefore only open to therapy and rehabilitation practitioners (chiropractors, athletic therapists, occupational therapists, etc.).
The Rehabilitation Training course for Pilates Instructors assumes a complete knowledge of the Pilates equipment repertoire and is therefore only open to fully qualified Pilates instructors.
Participants who do not have this level of knowledge will therefore be at a disadvantage and are encouraged to make enquiries with other Pilates training providers. We are happy to help point you in the direction that works for you: please send us an email.
Can I audit the courses?
Only the Introductory and Comprehensive Clinical Pilates courses are available for audit, with some conditions.
Will I have a recognisable certificate or certification when I complete the course?
Calibrate Clinical Pilates Education offers assessment-based certificates of completion, not a “Pilates Certification”. This is based on the recommendations of thePilates Method Alliance (PMA), which is a US-based regulatory body.
The PMA created the only third-party certification exam for Pilates instructors in North America, the NPCP, which is currently a voluntary process. This certification exam provides an assessment of predetermined standards, independent of a specific course of study or any course provider.
Are courses with Calibrate Pilates recognized by the PMA or NPCP?
Not at this time.
Does this course have third party recognition for continuing education?
You will need to check with your profession’s regulatory body, as this changes from year to year.
Calibrate Clinical Pilates Education courses have previously been approved for CEC’s for physiotherapy, chiropractic, athletic therapy and massage therapy regulatory bodies.
We are happy to assist you with enquires and take the steps for recognition with your professional regulatory body.
Do these courses have their own assessment?
Throughout the courses, you will be assessed formally and informally, to evaluate your understanding and integration of course material.
You must complete all assessments to a satisfactory level to achieve certification.
What is your refund policy?
Each course has specific refund policies, so we encourage you to view the appropriate Terms & Conditions.
