Sky’s the Limit’s Student Program General Information
Regardless of discipline, the USPA Integrated Student Program advances students through eight categories of proficiency (A-H) to qualify them for their USPA A license.
Each student must complete a series of required skills and knowledge while making the prescribed training jumps for each category. The number of jumps to complete each category depends on the training discipline and the student’s performance. An appropriately rated USPA Instructor must directly supervise each student jump until the student is cleared to self-supervision upon completing Category F. A USPA Coach may conduct freefall training and supervise jumps for those students in Categories G through H.
Once meeting all the requirements listed on the USPA A-License Proficiency or Progression Card, the student will make a check-out jump with a USPA Instructor to be issued the USPA A license. The check-out jump consists of an overall review of the training and includes a final quiz with questions taken from the quizzes at the end of each category.
The USPA Integrated Student Program provides an effective and detailed progression for training students for their A license. It is not a required program or the only good training outline. However, students should ensure that the training program at their school meets the USPA standards outlined in the Basic Safety Requirements.
