Skydiving certification



USPA establishes safety and training policies and programs and oversees the issuance of instructional ratings. Information on USPA safety and training programs is available from the Safety & Training Department at USPA Headquarters.  

Eligible USPA members may participate in USPA's instructional rating program. These programs are intended to disseminate safe and effective information on skydiving procedures for the instruction of student skydivers. They provide a realistic and practical system for issuing the USPA ratings of Coach, Instructor, and Instructor Examiner in four method-specific disciplines of student training: Accelerated Freefall (harness hold), instructor assisted deployment, static line, and tandem.



The Unites states parachute association has 4 types of skydiver licenses.
