Step 2: Buy the S.E. TICC Packet
Strong Enterprises requires each candidate jumping in Canada and the USA to purchase a tandem packet before the course starts. This packet contains the course materials and rating application. Also included is the TICC written exam. This is an open book exam and should be completed prior to the start of the course. TICC packets can be purchased either by calling Strong Enterprises @ 407-859-9317 or by e-mail @: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Cost for the Strong Enterprises Tandem packet is $150.
Keep in mind that packets are typically mailed using US Postal Service. Order your packet early enough that you are able to review the material before your course.
*Non USA residents who don’t intend to do tandem jumps in Canada or the USA do not need to purchase the tandem packet but instead pay a $40 rating fee.
STEP 3: Attend a TICC Course:
You will be expected to provide proof that you meet all the requirements to attend the course. You will also be expected participate in all portions of the TICC and successfully complete all ground training and training jumps
