Here is a quick summary of what you will be required to do when Learning Skydiving in Las Vegas.
The Integrated Student Program is an 8 level course to learn how to skydive. That means it can be done in 8 jumps. I does not mean that you will be guaranteed to do it in 8 jumps. This is a “Train to Proficiency” program. So, how many jumps it takes is mostly up to you.

That’s it! Once you can accomplish all those things you can jump by yourself. Then it’s time to work on your first license (A License). You need 25 jumps and some work on skills to qualify. You can do most of these on your own. Once you have that license, you can jump anywhere you want. You need to jump at least once every 30 days. Waiting longer than that between jumps will result in retraining and, most likely, repeating the prior student jump.
