To work within the scope of my training:

As a basic student level, I will not teach professionally inside or outside the certifying Pilates studio.
As an intermediate level apprentice, I may teach healthy and low risk clientele in a private session or teach a mat class to the maximum of 4 under the guidance of a certified Pilates Instructor.
As an advanced level apprentice, I may include clients with moderate risk injuries or conditions relevant to the level and scope of my training.

As an advanced apprentice I will adhere to instructor ratios of: 
- a maximum of 4:1 ratio in a studio setting; 
- a maximum of 6:1 in a mat class under the supervision of an approved certified instructor

I will work within an allied health network, limit any advice to the Pilates Method, and refer clients to other health professionals when their condition is outside the scope of practice of a Pilates apprentice / instructor.

I will discontinue training a client who has a condition, injury or symptoms beyond the scope of practice and experience of the level of my apprenticeship.

I will appropriately screen and induct clients, record and track client information and progress, and write reports as required and share with my supervising certified instructor.

I will behave in a professional, courteous and appropriate manner at all times. 

I will maintain the highest levels of safety in practice and instruction of the Pilates Method.
