Requirements for Becoming a Specialist

  1. All workshops included in the STOTT PILATES Specialty Tracks are open to any individual regardless of whether they have completed any training or certification in the STOTT PILATES method.
  2. A current STOTT PILATES certification at any level is required in order to be recognized as a “Specialist” in any track. A completion letter for each workshop will be issued, however, the “Specialist” designation will not be granted if no certification is held.
  3. A total of eight workshops within each track must be completed to receive the “Specialist” designation.
  4. There is no time limit to complete the required number of workshops; however, the individual must hold a current certification at the time of completion in order to receive the designation.
  5. Any individual wishing to receive recognition as a STOTT PILATES "Specialist" in any track must submit a written request to cecs@merrithew.com or fax to 416-482-2742. If we are unable to verify that the required number of workshops has been taken, the applicant must submit documentation to support their request.
  6. STOTT PILATES will accept any workshops taken after January 1, 2007 as part of the requirement for Specialist recognition.
  7. Any workshops taken prior to an individual becoming certified with STOTT PILATES will be considered for "Specialist" designation, however, status will not be granted until certification is achieved.
  8. If an 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.
  9. STOTT PILATES reserves the right to reject any request for "Specialist" status.
  10. If an instructor attends one workshop that appears in more than one Specialty Track, it will be counted toward completion of both tracks.
