Certifikace - časté dotazy

Jak mám začít?

Zúčastnit se základního školení Spinning. Naučíte se jak učit Spinning® program a jak vést bezpečné a efektivní lekce.

Jaký je rozdíl mezi certifikátem Spinning® Instructor  a jinými indoor cycling certifikáty?

Spinning je unikátní, protože byl vytvořen jako kondiční program pro profesionální cyklisty. Nejznámější je také díky fantastické globální síti certifikovaných Spinning instruktorů a Spinning Master Instruktorů. Také nabízí nejširší spektrum nadstavbových kurzů: semináře, domácí studium, on-line kurzy, fitness conferences a kvízy v newsletterech. Podívejte se na sekci Nadstavbové vzdělávání a objevte všechny možnosti vzdělání nebo ve Vyhledávači školení a akcí rovnou najděte nejbližší seminář.

Jak dlouho po absolvování Základního školení Spinning® musím složit test?

Přestože můžete skládat test již pár dní po absolvování Základního školení Spinning, doporučujeme nejprve dokončit všechny tři fáze tréninkového programu, jak jsou popsány v Manuálu Spinning Instruktora. Nezapomeňte, že Vaše certifikace je platní dva roky po absolvování Základního školení, a že do té doby musíte test složit.

Kolik mám pokusů, abych úspěšně složil on-line test?

Počet pokusů není omezen. Pokud nebudete napoprvé úspěšní, zkuste to znovu.

Musím absolvovat test dříve, než začnu vést lekce?

To záleží na Vašem centru, kde pracujete, ale Mad Dogg Athletics doporučuje dokončit certifikaci než začnete samostatně vést lekce. Je také dobré absolvovat kurz První pomoci a C-P resuscitace. Proto doporučujeme, abyste na začátku vedl lekce společně se zkušeným certifikovaným Spinning Instruktorem, než budete mít dokončenou certifikaci a budete připraven véstlekce.

Kdy obdržím svoji kartu certifikovanéh Spinning® Instruktora?

Jakmile úspěšně absolvujete on-line test, můžete počítat se 2-3 týdny pro USA a Kanadu, a 3-4 týdny pro další země. Přihlaste se do svého instruktorského profilu pro aktualizaci své poštovní adresy.

Co je to Nadstavbové vzdělávání?

Nadstavbové vzdělávání je pokračujícím vzděláváním po Základním školení Spinning, které z Vás udělá skutečné profesionály v oboru. Získáte další znalosti, které uplatníte při vedení svých lekcí a udržíte si platnou certifikaci do budoucna.

Co jsou STAR body?

STAR stands for Spinning Training Achievement Ranking, and STAR points are the Spinning program-related continuing education credits you must earn after getting certified, in order to maintain your certification. When you become a certified Spinning instructor, you have two years from the date of your Spinning Instructor Training to earn a minimum of 14 STAR points. Each hour of continuing education is worth 0.5-1.5 STAR points, depending upon the course. For example, rides without lectures typically award 0.5 STAR points per hour. Workshops typically award 1.5 STAR points per hour because they include take-home learning activities. You'll earn 6 STAR points for each 4-hour Spinning workshop, and 3 STAR points for each 2-hour Spinning workshop. To earn STAR points without leaving home, you can earn 1 STAR point for each newsletter quiz you complete, and 5-6 STAR points for each home study or online course. There are also extensive Recertification courses that award all 14 STAR points.

Can I earn STAR points for continuing education through organizations other than Mad Dogg Athletics?

Yes, you can petition to receive credit for workshops and courses completed through other educational organizations. Of course, the course content needs to be directly applicable to your role as a Spinning Instructor, and the course instructor must be qualified. Petitioned courses have to be earned within your renewal period and you cannot submit the same course more than once, within a single renewal period. Click here to learn more about the petition process.

Will the Spinning® Instructor Training and Spinning workshops provide CECs that I can apply towards other certifications?

Yes. ACE, AFAA, and NASM all award CECs for taking the Spinning Instructor Training, and most Spinning workshops and courses award credits for ACE and AFAA. Each course description will state the number of credits for that course on the continuing education page.

Can I submit my CPR/AED and First Aid cards for STAR Points?

Yes, you can earn 2 STAR points for CPR/AED and 1 STAR point for First Aid; however, the certifications must be current and earned within that two-year certification period and you can’t submit CPR/AED/First Aid more than once within a two-year certification period. Proof of certification is required.

What is the difference between recertification and renewal?

Certification renewal occurs every two years (two years from your original Spinning Instructor Training date), and you are eligible to renew if you have accumulated 14 Current STAR points for that renewal period. When you renew, you will receive an updated Certified Spinning Instructor card. Instructors who allow their certification to lapse more than one year, or need to earn all 14 Current points in order to renew, can take one of the Recertification courses. Once you pass the online assessment, you will receive a new card that expires two years from the date you passed your Recertification course.

What is the difference between the Spinning® Instructor Certification and the SPIN® membership?

The Spinning Instructor Certification is the credential you receive after you attend a Spinning Instructor Training and pass your online assessment. This certification is valid for two years. The SPIN membership is a benefit anyone can purchase and is valid for one year. SPIN members receive monthly ride profiles and discounts on education and products from Spinning, Peak Pilates®, Bodyblade®, Resist-A-ball® and our growing list of affiliates. If you register for a Spinning Instructor Training you automatically receive a complimentary 6-month SPIN membership.

What is the fee to renew my certification?

The certification renewal fee is waived if you’re a current SPIN member. Otherwise, it’s $69.95 every two years. If you renew your SPIN membership and certification at the same time, you pay just $99 and receive a free online course, plus a package of Spinning freebies. You’ll also receive 15-20% discounts on Spinning apparel and education every day. Learn more about certification renewal here.

Is my certification valid outside of my home state or country?

Yes, the Spinning Instructor Certification is globally recognized and you can teach anywhere the Spinning Instructor Certification is accepted, which is almost everywhere!

How can I find a job as a Spinning® Instructor?

The best type of studio or facility to apply your trade is an Official Spinning Facility. Official Spinning facilities use Spinners® (the official indoor cycling bike of the Spinning program), only employ certified Spinning instructors, and are allowed to post job openings on Spinning.com. Visit our Job Board on Spinning.com to search for open instructor positions in your area.
