Requirements for becoming a specialist

  • All workshops included in the STOTT PILATES Specialty Tracks are open to any individual regardless of whether they have completed any training or certification in the STOTT PILATES method
  • A current STOTT PILATES certification at any level is required in order to be recognized as a “Specialist” in any track. A completion letter for each workshop will be issued, however, the “Specialist” designation will not be granted if no certification is held
  • A total of eight workshops within each track must be attended and completed to receive the “Specialist” designation
  • There is no time limit to complete the required number of workshops; however, the individual must hold a current certification at the time of completion in order to receive the designation

  • STOTT PILATES will accept any workshops taken after Jan 1, 2007 as part of the requirement for Specialist recognition
  • Any workshops taken prior to an individual becoming certified with STOTT PILATES will be considered for “Specialist” designation, however, status will not be granted until certification is achieved
  • If an individual completes all workshop requirements in any one track, but does not hold a valid certification (i.e. yearly CECs have not been maintained), “Specialist” recognition will be granted only when certification is returned to good standing
  • STOTT PILATES reserves the right to reject any request for “Specialist” status
