After the first day of the pre-course, there is a full day of class. Once the class is completed we can start with evaluations. However, we allow candidates to continue to make practice jumps if they are not ready for the “hot jumps” yet. On average an AFF rating course takes 4-5 days to complete depending on the size of the group and weather conditions.
To pass the course you need to score “satisfactory” on:
- Category C main side evaluation jump
- Category C reserve side evaluation jump
- Category D evaluation jump
- Category C and D ground preparation
- score 80 % on the IRM written exam
To score “satisfactory” on an evaluation jump you have to score 75% satisfactory on the AFF in air evaluation form. You can find the evaluation forms in the USPA website, in the downloads section. The scoring will be explained to you during the AFF pre-course and you will know exactly what we are looking for.
