Platinum Instructing Course


The Platinum Instructing Course is the course which you complete if you want to work in one of Studio Pilates’ boutique reformer studios with our digital technology called “SP-TV”. The Platinum instructor training is broken down into two parts –

You not only receive access to Studio Pilates’ most exclusive and comprehensive training resources, but also benefit from the face to face course where you are able to consolidate your knowledge and practise your instructing in a practical environment. The aim of the Platinum instructor training is to empower Studio Pilates instructors with the knowledge and skills to become the world’s most elite and qualified Pilates instructors.

NOTE: the face to face component of this course may be 5 or 6 days depending on the course location and hours available at the venue. Please see the dates of the course that you are wanting to enrol in to check the duration.


  • Transform yourself into a world-class reformer instructor
  • Learn how to instruct a Studio Pilates Platinum class and gain the pre-requisite certification required to instruct in a Studio Pilates studio!
  • Practice teaching and cueing in a practical environment
  • Receive personalised instructing feedback every single step of the way
  • Learn over 150 exercises on the reformer and  receive a reformer Pilates certification
  • Ongoing career opportunities and job notifications – as trainees or graduates of the Studio Pilates International Platinum Instructor Training Program, you will be the first to receive notification of instructing positions that become available in any company owned or franchised studio.


You should complete your Platinum Certification course if your aim is to work in a Studio Pilates studio. If your main goal is to work in a gym or Pilates studio other than Studio Pilates, you should complete our Matwork and Reformer courses. At the end of your Platinum Certification, you will receive a Reformer Certificate but not a Matwork Certificate. If you require the full Matwork certification, you should consider completing the Studio Pilates Matwork course.
