This is my third course with Smart and the second with Claire as the Tutor.  I can’t recommend them enough.  The Pilates course was very thorough and gave me the confidence to begin teaching classes a couple of weeks after completing it.  Claire is very knowledgeable and the office staff are always very helpful. Cheers  Helen

Helen - Peterborough

Pilates – This was a fantastic course, great value and great tutor. Claire was extremely knowledgeable and has continued to support me since I passed the course. Highly recommended and I am continuing my studies with Smart Qualifications.

Claire - Peterborough

“I found the level 3 Pilates course offered by Smart Qualifications to be excellent.  A balanced mix of practical and theory throughout, and a focus on gaining a real understanding of the fundamental theories and principles behind delivering an effective Pilates session.  The tutor was approachable and incredibly knowledgeable, and the course well-structured and both challenging and enjoyable at the same time.  I would definitely recommend this course!”

Clare – Cambridge

“I began my level 3 mat pilates with another provider who runs courses throughout the UK.  It was not a good learning experience and I didn’t complete. I turned to SMART QUALIFICATIONS and they were brilliant and really enabled me to pass.  Suzanna, course director, was very clear about what was required and efficiently managed the whole process; never getting flustered with me.  Claire, assessor, gave me prompt and useful feedback and directed me to useful resources.  They were both very supportive and understanding; never judged me and provided a student centred experience.  In contrast to my previous experience, it became clear how well resourced and organised their course is.  I fully recommend them – go to SMART first.”   DK

Di – Cambridge

From the first conversation that I had with Suzanna I felt relaxed and confident that I would enjoy participating in Smart qualifications courses. Since then I have completed 3 courses and hope to complete many more. All were delivered in a professional, easy to follow format. Sections marked and returned promptly and electronically, as were all certificates. New friends and contacts made. Nothing is ever too much trouble and help and advice given all the way. Totally recommend using Smart qualifications thank you Suzanna and Claire.
