Skydiving is a sport for individualists who like to do things together. In the first portion of the USPA Integrated Student Program, Categories A-E, you focused on the skills required to survive independent freefall: stability control, deployment at the correct altitude, landing in a clear area, and how to use the equipment.
The remaining three categories, F-H, prepare you for more advanced freefall control. More importantly, you get ready for skydiving in groups-in freefall and under canopy.
Your education continues in canopy flight, equipment, and aircraft skills essential for safety. Soon, you'll graduate and become independent of supervision. Detailed review also continues on the emergency procedures introduced in the first-jump course.
With the direct assistance of other qualified staff members, such as the USPA Coach, the USPA Instructor continues to supervise your training and monitor your progress during all remaining student jumps until you obtain your USPA A license.
The freefall portions of Categories F through H address group flying techniques and skills. Under the supervision of a USPA Instructor, A USPA Coach may train you for the freefall skills in these last three categories and accompany you in freefall.
After completing all training and jumps at the end of Category H, you may sign up for a USPA A-license check dive with a USPA Instructor.
