The Pre-course activity:
The pre-course activities, or pre-requisites, are the best preparation tool for any rating course. Not only are they required before joining the course, but they will also give you an edge and a taste of what it's like to work with students. After you have enrolled in a USPA rating course, you will be able to go into your online USPA profile, under credential->education->"view my pre-reqs for rating course" and there you will be able to see all the pre-course activities. Your instructor can sign them off online through the "verify" function on their USPA profile. Make sure you get them all signed off before arriving at the course.
The online exam:
One of the requirements to pass the Static-line or IAD rating course is pass the IRM online exam with at least an 80%. This can be done online after you are enrolled in a course, but before you arrive at the actual course.
The exams you have to do for this course are the General Instructor test and the Static-Line Instructor exam. All candidates must complete the written exams prior to attending the course.
