The PMA Certification Program is now the National Pilates Certification Program
The purpose of the NPCP is to establish, maintain and promote professional standards, and to award the title of Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) to the comprehensively educated Pilates teacher who has provided evidence that they meet these established professional standards. For the public, employers, government agencies, and other professionals in allied fields, the NCPT credential provides assurance that the Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher is competent in the provision of services.
The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) offers accreditation to professional certification programs through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
Accreditation is a process by which a certification program is evaluated against defined standards by a third party. When the certification program is in compliance with these defined standards, it is awarded recognition. That recognition is called accreditation.
Accreditation allows certification programs to demonstrate to the profession it represents and to the general public that the program has met stringent standards set by the credentialing profession. Accreditation further enhances a certification program’s credibility and legitimacy by providing impartial, third party oversight of a detailed conformity assessment system. Accreditation is more than just a logo that goes on a website. It shows a commitment to quality assurance and continuous quality enhancement for a certification program.
