The A.P.E teacher training program recognises and welcomes people certified through other reputable Pilates organisations who desire certification in Authentic Pilates Education.
Every approach is different. The A.P.E bridging students will join the basic, intermediate and advanced workshops however apprentice hrs are reduced. Bridging students will need to spend 50hrs in the host studio for each level. (150 hours total) and a minimum of 20 private sessions with a teacher trainer.
NB: Where the assessment determines the candidate requires more than 150 apprenticeship hours, they will need to apply for full certification.
Two practical exams will be administered at times determined by the Principal Instructor Trainer, and there will be a final oral, practical, and written exam once all hours have been completed.
All exams must be passed to achieve certification.
All practical retests shall be given at a cost of AU$150.00;
If the final exam is not passed, up to 25 hours of apprenticeship shall be required before the exam is retaken.
Bridging program fee structure:
Tuition fee AU$4,500 plus 20 private lessons at a reduced rate i.e. AU$70 per session with the A.P.E Principal Instructor Trainer or other teacher trainer.
