Anatomy Quiz

If you have never taken a certification course at Pacific NW Pilates or any other licensed STOTT PILATES® training center, you must submit the following quiz with your course application before you will be permitted to enroll in a certification course at Pacific NW Pilates. If you prefer, you can download a PDF version of the anatomy quiz to mail or fax with your application form.

You can, of course, look up the answers as you’re taking the quiz, but the purpose of the quiz is to help us (and you) find out if your knowledge of anatomy is comprehensive enough to ensure your success in the certification program. You will need to know all the information covered in the quiz to successfully complete the course curriculum and we will discuss your quiz results in your introductory interview for the certification program.

If the quiz indicates that you need to learn more about anatomy, we will recommend that you take Functional Anatomy, which is a prerequisite for the IMP, IR and CMR courses.
