Once you’ve successfully qualified as a Pilates teacher, we strongly advise you to continue your education and training by Continuing Professional Development (CPD). CPD courses are a great way to enhance your skills and update your health and fitness knowledge. We want you to achieve, progress and ultimately to inspire your clients and to help you achieve this, we’ve produced a series of CPD courses that will extend your expertise and develop your career opportunities.
Joining a professional organisation such as REPs, will provide you with the recognition that you are qualified and have the knowledge, competence and skills within the industry. In order to retain your membership you have to prove your continuing professional development (CPD) each year, which is another great reason for updating your knowledge regularly.
We offer both e-learning and practical courses. You can take one of our courses at any point in your training (providing you meet entry requirements). Look at the REPs logo’s on each course to find out CPD points.
Take a look at our courses below and see what interests you.
