Registration Policies and Procedures
Space is limited and spots are granted on a first come, first serve basis once all materials and deposits are received. Students will be placed on a waitlist should payments not be received and course seat lost.
Letters of reference should be submitted with course application and reflect course pre-requisites, character, inter-personal skills, and/or any teaching abilities.
A deposit is required upon submission of your application to our programs to hold your spot and cover administrative costs. The deposit for your initial application is $310.00 plus GST. This deposit is non-refundable but is transferred towards the cost of your first certification examination provided your exam is booked within six months of your course completion date.
If you register for a subsequent course the deposit will be equal to 20% of the total course fee to hold your spot. All deposits are non-refundable.
Payment of Fees
All course fees are due in full two weeks before the start date of your course. There are no refunds for withdrawals within the two weeks prior to the start of the course. If a withdrawal is requested before the two weeks prior to the start of the course, a service charge of 10% is levied to cover administrative costs.
All course fees are subject to change without notice.
Course fees do not include course materials, exams or applicable taxes.
A deposit is required at time of registration for all workshops. Deposits are 20% of the workshop fees and is non-refundable. This ensures that your spot is held. Space is limited and registrations will be processed on a first-come-first serve basis. Space will only be reserved upon receipt of all payments and registration materials.
Workshop fees are non-refundable if withdrawal is within two weeks of the workshop start date. If withdrawal is requested prior to the two weeks before the start date, then a service charge of 10% is levied to the refunded amount to cover administrative costs. The refund amount will reflect the non-refundable deposit.
Workshop fees are subject to change without notice.
Course and Workshop Cancellations
Calgary Pilates reserves the right to cancel a course due to low registration or any unforeseen circumstances. Any fees paid on the cancelled course or workshop will be reimbursed in full by cheque if requested.
Courses and Workshops Hosted Off Site
If Calgary Pilates is hosted to conduct courses off site, please note that a travel surcharge may be applied to the course fees.
Prospective Pregnant Registrants
We do not accept registration into our courses from pregnant students. Normally it is considered safe and desirable to workout during pregnancy as the workout is being tailored to an individual and her particular stage of pregnancy, however courses cannot be geared to pregnancy or to that particular individual. We believe that by allowing participation by a pregnant student, we expose both ourselves and the student to unnecessary risk.
We allow auditing of the following STOTT PILATES® courses if a student has previously taken them: IMP, IR, ICAD,ICHR, IBRL, AM, AR, ACAD, ACHR, ABRL, CMR, CCCB, RMR1, RMR2, RCCB1 and RCCB2. We also allow auditing of the ISP course if taken post June 2007 to present.
Please contact your closest Training Center if you are interested in auditing.
We do not however, allow auditing of any of the workshops we offer (CEC / introductory) as the main goal of the workshops is continuing education and not certification.
Students must have their own complete course package exclusively for their use during the course. We believe this guarantees that all students will have access to the study materials as needed during the course.
Video or Audio Recording
Audio or video recordings of courses being taught is strictly prohibited. If there are exceptional circumstances that make this necessary, the student must apply for and receive express written permission from Merrithew Health & Fitness™ and sign a contract restricting its use. This policy is to help us avoid any infringement on our intellectual property.
