BASI offers three stand alone programs: Mat, Foundation Apparatus (FAP) and Comprehensive Apparatus Program (CAP). Students who want to become fully certified Pilates instructors are required to take all three programs, which, in combination, fulfill all aspects, required of a comprehensive teacher training program. Students who complete all of the mat program requirements may teach the full mat repertoire.
The Foundation Apparatus Program offers an introduction to the basic exercises performed on the Reformer, Cadillac, and Chair. Completion of the Mat program is a pre-requisite to enrollment in the FAP. Completion of the FAP does not qualify students to teach the apparatus, but it does allow them to teach mat. Students who are interested in becoming a fully credentialed Pilates instructors are encouraged to enroll in the Comprehensive Apparatus Program (CAP). Students who sign up for both the FAP and the CAP receive a $200 discount. Completion of all three of the programs and requisite hours of study, observation, student teaching, and self practice qualifies the student to take the final teaching evaluation that culminates in the BASI Pilates Instructor Credential.
