Since 2011, the PMA Teacher Training Summit Meetings have provided a forum for the PMA and Pilates schools to work collaboratively to develop Educational Standards for Pilates comprehensive teacher training.

At the 2013 Summit meeting in San Diego, the PMA Minimum Educational Template was ratified; it established suggested content for comprehensive Pilates training.

At the 2016 Summit meeting, the Pilates School Approval Program (PSAP) was presented. It represents the first approval program for Pilates schools based on accreditation norms and on Educational Standards.

In April 2017, the PSAP was launched.
