Please note: These are general MERRITHEW™ Policies. Please refer to the specific course and facility policies when registering for instructor training at any of our licensed training facilities around the world.
Prospective Pregnant Registrants
While it is considered safe and desirable to work out during pregnancy our courses can be quite demanding, and have not been tailored for pregnant women. We do not accept registration into our courses from students who are knowingly pregnant. Under certain circumstances permission may be granted for select workshops. Requests must be submitted in writing to the Senior Program Director, Education at least 30 days prior to the workshop date.
We allow auditing of the following courses if a student has previously taken them: IMP, IR, ICAD, ICHR, IBRL, AM, AR, ACAD, ACHR, ABRL, CMR, and CCCB. We also allow auditing of the ISP course if taken post-June 2007 to present and the RMR1, RMR2, RCCB1 and RCCB2 courses if taken post-June 2012. Please contact your closest Training Center if you are interested in auditing. We do not however, allow auditing of any Functional Anatomy course and any of the workshops we offer (CEC / introductory) as the main goal of the workshops is continuing education and not certification.
Please note: Auditing is not permitted for any Foundation Course.
Absenteeism & Make-up Hours
No time can be missed during any Foundation Course and there will be no make-up hours. If any of the course time is missed, the course must be re-taken.
Video or Audio Recording
Audio or video recordings of courses being taught is strictly prohibited. If there are exceptional circumstances that make this necessary, the student must apply for and receive express written permission from the Senior Program Director, Education and sign a contract restricting its use. This policy is to help us avoid any infringement on our intellectual property.
Candidates must be at least 18 years of age to participate in any STOTT PILATES® course, workshop or examination.
Grievance and Appeals Process
Students who choose to submit a formal grievance regarding their education training may do so in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the course or workshop completion. Grievances should include details regarding the specific situation, the desired resolution of the grievance, and any other relevant supporting information. All grievances will be attended to within 60 days of receipt.
