How far back do workshops count towards Specialty Tracks?

We will accept any workshops taken after January 1, 2007 as part of the requirement for Specialist recognition.

Can I take workshops to earn a Specialty Track Designation if I am not a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor?

Any workshops taken prior to an individual becoming STOTT PILATES Certified is eligible for “Specialist” designation, however, status will not be granted until certification is achieved.

Do all STOTT PILATES workshops count towards Specialty Tracks?

Only workshops listed under the Specialty Track Categories will count towards a designation.

Can I request a Specialty Track designation if I do not have a STOTT PILATES Certification?

A current STOTT PILATES certification at any level is required in order to be recognized as a “Specialist” in any track.

If I am not up to date with my yearly CECs can I request a Specialty Track designation?

If any 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.

If I retake workshops in any track, will it count two times towards a designation?

Individuals are welcome to retake workshops to earn CECs however; it will only count once towards Specialty Track designation.

Things to know

Any individual wishing to receive recognition as a STOTT PILATES “Specialist” in any track must submit the Specialty Tracks designation request form. If we are unable to verify that the required number of workshops has been taken, the applicant must submit documentation to support their request.
