A word to those contemplating getting their ratings-

We have outstanding instructors Skydive Orange. Many new folks coming along through the training programs who will no doubt help to keep our standards high for the future and carry the SOI flame when they have the experience- those years go by quick when you are having fun skydiving, as do the hundreds and then thousands of jumps, so eventually they may qualify for a rating. 

 

As the person in charge and in control of the student program at Skydive Orange, that puts a lot of responsibility on me in hiring the right instructors.  The possession of an instructional rating of any sort does not automatically mean you will be on staff here! I take the responsibility to our customer's safety seriously. And there are many other considerations involved as well, some not directly related to instructional abilities. It may be nothing more than my feeling that this person just won't fit in, I am not comfortable with them, or if I don't think a certain person is the right for us, I will not to allow them to instruct here.
