PAI holds the right to cancel a course with 1 month notice. In the event of a cancellation, all payments will be returned including the $200 deposit.

Certification Exam and Fees

The student has one year from the last day of each course to take the certification exam. If the student takes longer than a year, a review hour must be scheduled with a certifying instructor at the rate of $107/hr. This hour serves to ensure the student is on track with studying and the information hasn’t been lost throughout the year.

Exams for every All Populations l course includes a written and practical portion, All Populations ll includes only a Practical. A score of at least 80% is required to pass the written. The practical is graded as pass/fail.

The first exam consisting of ABP and the student’s first All Populations l course Exam is $225. All following exams or retakes are $50 per course.

Make up Hours

It is required that students attend every day of training. If a student has a conflict that cannot be resolved and must miss training hours, the student must notify  Gerda Pilates prior to the course. Make up hours must be scheduled with a certifying instructor at $107/hour. (Note that 3 hours of missed group training does not necessarily equal 3 make up hours as a student is often able to go through material faster in a one-on-one setting. The number of review hours will be decided upon by the certifying instructor and the Gerda Pilates).
