International Pilates College Certification Convention
The IPCertification Practical Exams are Pilates specific and tend to be an educational experience
Pilates Certification sets the highest standards in the Pilates industry - with
experiential understanding, critical evaluation analysis
and practical applications; IPCertification was established in 1989, the first Pilates orginization to be a memeber of ACSM and NOCA (National Organization of Credibility Assurance - now know as NCCA).
& IPC require fitness trainers to perform a Fitness Test, design a workout
program based on that Fitness Test and safely teach the program.
PMA certifications set the lowest standards - with one written test; taking a written test may indicate your memorization ability, testing skills or retention of information but does not demonstrate your ability to safely impart that knowledge to a Pilates client.
