The 10 Educational Standards

What are the 10 Educational Standards?​

The 10 Educational Standards are norms that serve as an objective basis by which schools can be approved. The 10 Educational Standards were developed by members of the Pilates Educators Group, by PMA Staff and by the PMA Board of Directors. By borrowing from existing accrediting and vocational school licensing models, these groups worked together to develop standards that are consistent with existing models and reflect specifics related to Pilates teacher training.

Why are Standards for Pilates Teacher Training Programs important?

Standards are a norm in education, certification, professional practice, and in any industry.  The 10 Educational Standards serve as an objective measure allowing consensus and further development of the industry.

Schools have to meet these 10 Educational Standards and provide evidence in order to be approved by the PSAP.
