Update on Accreditation Process
We understand that the Australian Pilates community and the regulatory landscape is moving towards establishing minimum standards for professional membership and accreditation. This is not
currently mandatory and therefore we want to ensure you that you are free to continue training your clients without any restrictions.
We feel very confident that our education standards meet, or exceed any level that may be required in order to be recognized by the appropriate certifying agencies. Merrithew Health & Fitness™ education is recognized by many international certifying bodies including ACE, canfitpro, REPS, Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and Fitness Australia (FA).
As part of our commitment to learn more I have been appointed internally to directly oversee the Australian professional membership and accreditation process. Here is a quick status update:
- We are preparing our renewal application for our intensive programs and workshops with FA for CECs
- We have received interim approval for our Rehab Program by the APA for CEC renewal
- We are in touch with various board members from many of the Australian Fitness and Pilates organizations to better understand how our branded programs, including STOTT PILATES®, can be recognized for CECs and the new certification requirements set by the Australian Government
