Teacher Training: Redcord
There are fewer than 30 Redcord Active Specialists (RACs) in the country, but CORE has 2 in-house. We offer an apprenticeship to employees for Redcord's Introduction & Multi-Suspension courses and the Active Advanced courses. This apprenticeship includes forty hours of observation, practice teaching, and lessons. We also offer work-study options for our trainees.
You must already be a Pilates teacher or a Physical Therapist in order to complete Redcord’s Active Track teacher training program. Redcord trainees receive a certification upon completion of each course. You can teach Redcord to clients with any of these certifications. To become a licensed Redcord Active Specialist (RAC), you must complete all three courses and pass a final exam.
The Redcord Active Track program has 3 steps:
- Introduction & Multi-Suspension: Two one-day courses of seven hours each. The Introduction course details Principles of Redcord Exercise. The Multi-Suspension course includes Full Body Suspension and Rotational Exercise.
- Active Advanced: A two-day course in which you’ll learn to offload a client’s body weight. This course covers topics Functional Tests and Movement Screening, Kinetic Chain Testing, and Corrective Exercise.
- Active Pro: A two-day course which covers topics: Personal Exercise Plans, Case Studies, and concludes with the exam to qualify as a Redcord Active Specialist (RAC).
