Four Ways to Earn CECs You May Not Be Aware Of

4 Ways to Earn CECs You May Not Be Aware Of

To maintain Certification, Instructors need CECs. For many, attending trainings and workshops at a nearby Licensed Training Center, Host Training Center, or the Corporate Training Center in Toronto is the easiest way to earn CEC credits.

But there are alternatives. Below are four ways to stay up-to-date with CECs you may not be aware of.

  1. Video
    Study a Merrithew DVD and submit a 15-minute video of yourself teaching the subject matter for evaluation to earn CEC credits. DVD selections exclude the required DVDs for Certification courses. For each Merrithew DVD you review, submit a 15-minute video for evaluation for 0.1 CECs*. Digital videos can be submitted through merrithew.wetransfer.com or you can mail your recording on a brand-name DVD, such as Sony, to the Merrithew Corporate Training Center in Toronto. Each 15-minute video must be accompanied by a petition form.
  2. Exercise Science Course
    Take an anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology or other exercise science course or workshop and earn CECs. If it’s a not a STOTT PILATES course, simply submit a petition for acceptance. The workshop or course must be at least two hours. More than one non-STOTT PILATES petition can be submitted, but a maximum of 0.2 CECs will be awarded once approved.
  3. Customized Repertoire Review or Teaching Evaluation
    Complete a customized repertoire review or a teaching evaluation with a Merrithew Instructor Trainer at a Licensed Training Center or Host Training Center near you. If location is an issue, get in touch with an Education Advisor to discuss alternative options at educationadvisor@merrithew.com or call 1-800-910-0001 ext. 300.
  4. Symposium or Tradeshow
    Earn CECs at Merrithew education sessions in all of our branded programming at symposiums or tradeshows around the world.

*Video submissions will not count toward Specialty Tracks.

    Hi Ihekekia,

    Thanks for your question! Yes, smartphone and other digital recordings are acceptable, and can be submitted through www.merrithew.wetransfer.com.

    I want to thank a fellow certified STOTT PILATES® Instructor for directing me to this information!  It is NOT easy for people in Hawaii to attend a live workshop because there are so few opportunities.  No LTC left, Jayme is semi-retired. Hosting center is on Oahu, but we have at best only one opportunity per year because Vivian goes out of her way to do them, and then it's contingent on a number of things, so the timing is unpredictable and we don't have much time to get notice and then get the word out.  We cannot always bank on that being available.  Please consider webinars and other distance learning opportunities because the amount of time and travel expense needed for us in Hawaii is onerous.  And recording a video on a DVD will rapidly become impossible because it's a dying technology.  So, in digital videos, does that also include recording on your smart phone?
