The USPA Professional Archived Newsletters

Glance through the last several years of this email newsletter designed to provide instructional rating holders with the latest happenings in the sport.

USPA Library

Released for Safety & Training Advisors, this online repository contains multiple courses and modules for continuing education. Not all members have access to this e-learning environment, but plans to expand offerings are in the works.

Skydive School

This Online Ground School is free to use with no sign-up required! While not a full course, this training resource provides valuable information for first-time jumpers as well as students earning their A license. Even uncurrent licensed jumpers might find it useful for refresher training. Sections include equipment, exit, freefall, canopy flight, landing, and emergency procedures.

Virtual Reality Malfunction Video Series

This series of VR videos depict the most commonly found malfunctions and ones covered in the ISP training. You can use these in a VR player, on your smartphone, or directly via the YouTube link. There is even an option for downloading.

ISP Category Dive Flows

This vidoe series on YouTube depicts dive flows in both Freefall and Canopy for all Categories of the ISP. Coaches and Instructors can use these as accurate demonstrations in their ground preps, and students can use them to preview what's next in their progression.

ISP Category Quizzes

A great resource for students earning their A license, these online quizzes present the questions that appear in the ISP, Section 4 of the SIM, in an instantly graded format. No sign-up or login required to access.

Skydivers Information Manual

The digital version of the SIM is available as a downloadable pdf. Plans to bring back a resource similar to the app are scheduled for next season.

To Be Continued ...

In conjunction with the IT Department and highly experienced Instructor Examiners, USPA's Safety & Training Department is continuing to develop even more resources to help members learn and train more easily and with the most current body of knowledge from the industry. 

Watch for updated and additional useful resources coming soon!
