THE PROFICIENCY CARD

The Coach proficiency card is in the back of the USPA Instructional Rating Manual (IRM). The proficiency card serves as your rating application form after you have completed all portions of the USPA Coach course.

Take a look at the proficiency card and you will see that some items need to be signed off prior to the course. Many topics on the card will be signed off during the course by either the coach examiner or by your evaluator.

THE COURSE

The course starts on the scheduled first day at 8:00 a.m. with verification of the requirements (outlined above) so bring your membership card and logbook if necessary. The course is conducted over three-days (see the day-to-day schedule below) including all ground skills and the two air skills evaluations. To be successful each candidate must score satisfactory on two-directed teaching sections and on all topics for ground preparation for group free fall skills. You must score satisfactory on two-evaluation jumps to test your air skills.


COURSE FEES

The Coach Course training fee is $250.00 per person. The USPA rating fee is $35.00 and will be paid with your proficiency card upon completion of all requirements. You are responsible for two evaluation jumps: your slots and your evaluator's slots.

You will also be responsible for the Course Examiner's travel, transportation on-site, and lodging (to be determined).

THE WRITTEN TEST

One of the requirements to complete the Coach course is taking a written exam and scoring at least 80 percent. The questions for this exam and answer sheet are in the back of the IRM. It is an open book test and forces you to read through the IRM and SIM and is required to be completed prior to the start of the course.

COURSE MATERIAL

All portions of the USPA Coach Rating Course are covered in the IRM and SIM. If the SDU coach rating is desired you will need to order your course materials from www.skydiveu.com at a cost of $100.00 to Skydive University in addition to the USPA documents.
