Fully Comprehensive Pilates Apparatus Diploma

Fully Comprehensive Pilates Apparatus Diploma


Introduction

We are very pleased to be able to live stream and teach face to face our fully comprehensive Pilates apparatus diploma including the AIQ Pilates mat diploma and the Pilates studio apparatus with our international team of presenters in conjunction with MK Pilates. You can take your course in one of the best equipped apparatus studio’s in the UK with Align Ladder Barrel, Wunda Chair and Spine Correctors and 10 individual Peak MVE Reformers and Towers. Each course has limited places so that learners have their individual reformers and towers to enable plenty of individual practice time. You will learn over 500 traditional exercises across the repertoire with over 500 hours of study, shadowing and self practice. You can build up your training module by module, or you can book as one diploma from the start. If you already hold your mat qualification you can move straight to apparatus and choose the option without mat. 

Our fully comprehensive Pilates apparatus diploma!

Is our main Studio Apparatus Certification and consists of our 5 individual apparatus certifications as detailed below.

Each of the Reformer and Mat certifications consists of 4 days of education and assessment in a 4 day intensive course format with a full online programme of videos of the repertoire in support materials. The best of both worlds. You get to learn face to face and practice using our full video repertoire in your own time. The Tower/Cadillac Courses are 2 days each and again can be split but typically are presented in one weekend each. The three other pieces of traditional apparatus included in our Diplomas are each a one day certification. This includes the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel and the Spine Corrector. The result is 15 days of Face to Face tutor led time, and along with your home study time, personal practice hours, shadow hours and client case study hours. This programme provides you with our maximum credit of educational development hours for Pilates Studio Apparatus. You will attend face to face training or live training over zoom together with a full online video support material for all the repertoire, shadow hours with a fully trained teacher and personal practice embodiment hours.

What our learners say:

“I just wanted to ask ‘WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!!?’  LOL. I LOVED the course on the weekend.  I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I had no idea about this kind of work before I looked into studying Pilates a few weeks ago.  When I finished school I really wanted to become a physiotherapist but I didn’t have a high enough Maths score to get into the university courses where I lived in South Africa.  I also equally wanted to be a ballet teacher and so pursued that career instead. I just loved every moment on the course with you.  I really have learnt so much and I am just so excited to really go and sink my teeth into all the resources that you have made available to us. So I just wanted to thank you for your time, knowledge and expertise that you shared with us this weekend. ” (KL, Dec 2021)

“I attended the course yesterday and I wanted to say a big thank you. I absolutely LOVE learning with Drummond Education; it has consistently been a very nurturing and reliable place to learn which I have found from experiences with other training providers quite hard to come by. ” (AH March 21)

“Thanks to Drummond Education Academy I could become a Pilates Instructor which was the objective but I got more than just the diploma. I have really enjoyed (and still enjoying) the overall structure of the program, practice, values and ways of working. Drummond is making each individual self develop throughout the program at their own pace with customised support. Any program at Drummond is very flexible, you can repeat a class as many times as you want. The teachers are amazing highly knowledgeable driven by the wonderful Gill (and Alex). At Drummond, you are really challenged but at the same time, you never feel that you can’t succeed, they are supporting you all the way from homework to practical sessions.  I have found a fun and supportive team who can not never do enough for you even during lockdown, they organise free workshops. I highly recommend Drummond to anyone willing to start a career in Fitness.” (AS March 2021)

This Pilates Diploma Instructor Training course is internationally accepted and recognised by the Pilates Method Society
