If a student chooses to WITHDRAW FROM TRAINING outside of two weeks prior to the start date, the course cost will be returned to the student with the exception of the 500 AED non-refundable deposit. If the student chooses to withdraw from training within the two weeks prior to the start date or after the course begins, no refunds will be given but the payment is transferable.

If a student chooses to POSTPONE TRAINING, the payment is transferable with a 250 AED transfer fee for 6 months. After 6 months, the payment is transferable for another 6 months with an additional 400 AED transfer fee. After 1 year, the payment is non-transferable.

Pilates Academy holds the right to cancel a course with 1 month notice. In the event of a cancellation, all payments will be returned including the 500 AED deposit.

Certification Exam and Fees

The first exam, consisting of ABP, and All Populations l Exams are 500 AED per course. All Population II Exams are 250 AED per course. Retakes are 250 AED per course.

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 200 AED/hr. This time 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.

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 Pilates Academy prior to the course.

Make up hours must be scheduled with a Certifying Instructor at 200 AED/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 Pilates Academy director).
