Earning a USPA Coach Rating is the first step to becoming a skydiving instructor in a variety of training disciplines. The three-day course will consist of ground training, presentation practice, and final evaluation of a candidate’s coaching skills on the ground and in the air. Supplemental wind tunnel training will be available in the week prior to the course.

The following items are minimum requirements:

– Current USPA membership
– USPA B license
– Completed 100 jumps*
– Reference from chief instructor (or similar) at home drop zone

– Acquire a current Skydiver’s Information Manual (SIM) and Instructional Rating Manual (IRM). Neither the SIM nor the IRM may be more than 2 years old at the time of the course.
– Assist in one complete solo first-jump course. A supervising USPA Instructor observes and evaluates each candidate for coaching skills and communication ability.
– Correctly answer at least 80% of the questions on the USPA Coach Final Examination, found within the IRM.
