On Continuing Education

What are Continuing Education Credits (CECs)?

Continuing Education Credits (CECs or CEUs) are required by the Pilates Method Alliance and most Pilates, personal training and group exercise certification programs in order to renew your membership or your status as a certified instructor. Each organization sets its own requirements for the number of Continuing Education Credits (CECs or CEUs) needed annually or bi-annually.

How many CECs must I have annually? 

Balanced Body does require continuing education: 16 hours every two years.
