Instructional Ratings Courses at the Desert Campus

If you’ve ever dreamt of leaving the 9 to 5 behind and becoming a professional skydiver, you’re definitely not alone. Anyone who has ever finished an AFF course has probably considered it at one time or another. So what’s stopping you from hanging up the shirt and tie, and donning a pair of shorts and flip-flops for work?

The Desert Campus is running instructional courses for coach, AFF, and tandem ratings from September until November. Get your name on the list. It could change your life.

Course Dates
September 22 to 24: Tandem Instructor course

September 30 to October 2: Coach course

October 4 to 15: AFF Instructor course*

October 28 to 30: Coach course

November 1 to 6: Tandem Instructor course*

*Length of courses dependent on the number of students in each course, and may be shorter than stated.


There are obvious advantages to leaving the desk job behind – An office at 13,000 feet, hanging out at the dropzone (and getting paid to do it!), a relaxed working environment, and most importantly, you’ll get to introduce people to the sport you love as a coach, AFF or tandem instructor.

To be eligible for a coach rating, you must have a B licence and a minimum of 100 skydives. To become an AFF instructor you must currently hold a C licence, and to become a tandem instructor, you must have a D licence.

For more information or to sign-up, contact our staff using the contact form on the Desert Campus briefing page, and choose the relevant course option.

Leave the 9 to 5 behind and measure life in altitude, not hours.
