The latest developments at Skydive Ratings have resulted in a new class: The Coach Pre-course. This individually tailored class will help you be successful in the Coach course and prepare you for the class and the jumps
The Coach course is probably the most overwhelming instructional rating course. The course outline covers an incredible amount of information, the teaching skills you are learning take more than just the evaluations to make your own, the jumps are new in that way that you need to be able to focus on your student instead of focusing on yourself. Added to that is the supervision you are giving to "your student", the equipment checks, the need for altitude awareness and giving the correct hand signals without backing up. Just a lot of new skills- on the ground and in the air- to be nervous about.
The goal of the pre-course is to provide you with proper preparation. Work on your individual air skills, introduce you to some key points of the course outline, Build your confidence and assess your readiness for the course.
There are no minimum requirements for the Coach pre-course. This means that if you are still working on reaching the 100 jumps and you know you want to become a Coach, you could register for a day of Coach pre-course. It is a perfect way for you to find out where you stand skills wise and you will learn what skills/things you can work on before you take the actual Coach course
If you do meet the requirements for the Coach course this is still a great option to gain confidence, build on your skills and become the best Coach you can be!
You can find some Coach pre-course dates on our calendar. We will be happy to schedule an individual day for you! Don't hesitate to contact us with your questions.
