Skydive Ratings Information

Skydive Ratings skydiving school offers instructional rating courses for licensed skydivers. Our campus and classroom facilities are located at Skydive City in Zephyrhills, FL and at Skydive Sebastian in FL. Skydive City is our main place of operation

A full-time rating school since 2003, Skydive Ratings offers exceptional training from the world's most experienced skydiving examiners and evaluators in a clean, comfortable, learning focused environment. We provide personalized training and coaching which allows our students to develop the skills they need to succesfully complete their course and earn their rating.

Skydive Ratings is owned and operated by Bram Clement. Bram has been a Tandem Examiner since 1993 and started as an AFF evaluator in 1993 as well. Bram is one of the most experienced AFF Examiners in the world today.

Our high season is during the winter months - October through April - when skydivers from all over the USA and the world visit us to get rated in one or more instructional ratings. During the summer months, we have some availability to travel, teaching our courses at dropzones in the USA and Overseas.

We teach the following rating courses:

  • USPA Coach
  • USPA AFF-Instructor rating
  • USPA Static Line Instructor rating
  • USPA IAD Instructor rating
  • USPA Tandem Instructor rating
  • USPA Instructor-Examiner rating course
  • UPT Vector/Sigma Tandem rating
  • Strong tandem rating
  • Wings tandem rating
  • Racer tandem rating
  • Wings Tandem Examiner rating

In addition to the initial rating courses, we also offer re-currency training and certification for expired rating holders. In most cases, foreign rating holders with a current rating from their country are able to challenge the USPA rating course in that discipline.

Overseas courses

During the summer and early fall, we have some availability to travel, on request, to teach our courses elsewhere. Send an email to to find out about availability.

The Sigma Tandem training that I received at Skydive Ratings set me up for success at my home dropzone. I left the course feeling safe, prepared, and aware to face the real world at a fast paced dropzone. Thanks Bram for teaching me the valuable lesson and making sure I never forget my flare toggles again! I would recommend this course to anyone that is serious about their training and willing to put in the preparation for a successful course.
