In Canada, your first skydive license is called the Solo license. This license allows you to jump anywhere in Canada without having a coach or instructor present. You are still considered a novice level skydiver and are not cleared to jump in formation with anyone unless this person is a coach or instructor who is teaching you. This license is only obtained through the AFF/PFF course.
Otherwise, you will go directly to the second level license which is the A license. This license is the standard world-wide and you are cleared to jump alone anywhere in the world, with a second person who is a coach/instructor or someone who has their B level license and 100 jumps.
The first step to becoming a skydiver is to decide how you want to learn. There are 3 types of courses:
Instructor Assisted Deployment (IAD)
Once you’ve decided what type of course you want to take, you simply need to get in touch with your local Drop Zone to schedule a course or you could e-mail Adam and he can point you in the right direction.
