Instructional ratings courses are available at Skydive Algarve in collaboration with the Instructors Academy. If you are a confident skydiver and feel ready to make skydiving more of a career path than a hobby, then you can take the next step and ask us about the range of courses available to you dependent upon your experience level.

  • Coach
  • AFF Instructor
  • Tandem Instructor (USPA and UPT)
  • IAD / Static-line Instructor

Courses are based upon the USPA (United States Parachute Association) syllabus and therefore your certification will be recognised in most countries internationally and you will be eligible to work wherever USPA ratings are accepted. Some countries may want to double-check or make a conversion, which is usually administration or an evaluation jump. If you know you want to work in a specific country you can always check with the relevant federation in advance.
