No one likes rejection

As much as we hate to whine, the license applications and rating course paperwork we have been receiving lately could really use improvement! We are having to reject many license or rating applications because they have not been filled out correctly by the instructor, or instructor examiner. Help us take care of the license and rating applications in a timely manner by following these simple guidelines:

Licenses

  • The A license cards must have each line item completed with the appropriate date, jump number or instructor initials and license number.
  • Scribbling your initials in large letters across the page doesn’t count!
  • Initialing the top item and drawing a line through the rest of the requirements doesn’t count either!
  • If you are faxing the license application, make a copy on white paper first and fax the white copy rather than the yellow card.
  • The B-D license application must be completely filled out, including the jump numbers used for the accuracy requirements, the water training date and test scores, jump number or dates for the maneuvers required for the B and C license and dates of the two night jumps for a D license application)
  • A final signature and membership number for the verifying instructor (B and C license application only), Instructor Examiner or S&TA (B, C and D license application) is required,
  • The person signing for licenses and ratings must have a current membership and ratings with USPA, so make sure you are current before you sign a license application or rating renewal

Ratings

  • Every USPA Coach or Instructor rating course must be registered at USPA Headquarters by sending the course dates and details in an email to safety@uspa.org or by calling 540-604-9740 extension 315.
  • USPA Tandem instructor rating applications must include a copy of the FAA third class medical exam or the foreign or military equivalent.
  • Coach and Instructor proficiency cards must be signed or dated on each appropriate line.
  • Instructions on how to convert a manufacturers tandem rating to a USPA Tandem Instructor rating can be found on the USPA website.
  • Be sure to include a copy of the FAA 3rd class medical certificate, or the foreign or military equivalent, for any USPA Tandem Instructor rating.
  • If you are faxing the rating application, make a copy on white paper and fax the white copy rather than the colored card.
