If you've completed continuing education that you think should qualify for STAR points, we want to know about it. You can petition for credit on courses not previously approved by Mad Dogg Athletics, as long as the topics directly relate to your role as a certified Spinning® instructor (e.g., exercise science, biomechanics, heart rate training), and the course was taught by a qualified presenter. For each two-year certification period, you may receive no more than 6 STAR points through petition including CPR/AED and First Aid.
You can earn 0.5 STAR points for CPR/AED and 0.5 STAR points for First Aid; however, the certifications must be current and earned within that two-year certification period. Best of all, these points do not count towards your petition maximum and you don’t have to pay the petition fee to earn these points. So as long as you remain current with your emergency certifications you can easily earn 1 STAR point every renewal period. Proof of certification is required.
You can petition courses online or download a STAR Point Petition Form and follow the instructions for submission. We will notify you within 2-3 weeks whether or not your petition has been approved for STAR points.
