While you are training you can get student insurance from a company called Balens in order to teach, but you must declare that you are in training and charge a lower rate than you would if you were a fully qualified Pilates Instructor. You will, of course, need a proof of training letter from us in order to do this, and it will also be subject to eligibility criteria.
Many of our students complete a module then choose to take a study break before continuing to the next one.
If there comes a time when you feel you need a break in your studies this can be arranged by contacting our team of Training Coordinators on the numbers at the top of this page, who will be able to guide you through your options.
(Please note that extension or deferral fees may be applicable and if you are paying by instalments these must still be paid as agreed).

The average time to complete a combined a level 2 gym instructor + level 3 personal training course is around 12 to 18 months.
If you are already qualified at Level 2, the time for the level 3 course by itself is likely closer to 8-14 months.
Anyone from the age of 16 can enrol and complete any of our non-practical e-learning courses. Practical courses can only be attended on or after your 18th birthday but can be enrolled on and booked in advance of this.
Many gyms will accept applicants of 16 years of age, but be aware that if you are planning to work outside of clubs or leisure centres as a Personal Trainer, an Exercise to Music Instructor or a Pilates Teacher, you may not be eligible for the required insurance until you are 18 years old or over.
