B-Rels & Star Crest

B-Rels & Star Crest

Complete Your B-Rels at Skydive Ramblers

After you receive your ‘A’ Certificate, the next step towards becoming an experienced skydiver is to complete your B-Rels (B-Rels = ‘B-Certificate’ Course relative work jumps). B-Rels are designed to teach you how to skydive safely with other skydivers.

The B-Rel program consists of 6 Stages. If your flying skills are already exceptional, you might even be able to do more than one Stage at a time. Once you’ve completed all six stages (and a few additional minor qualifications), you’ll be eligible to receive your ‘B’ Certificate.

B-Rel Support

One of the biggest hurdles to a skydiver in the early months, is the cost!

To support your early progression in skydiving, the Australian Parachute Federation (APF), the South Queensland Parachute Council (SQPC), and the Toogoolawah Skydivers Club (TSC) are helping you save and get back up in the skies! Be sure take advantage of these rebate and training programs:

Star Crest

Earning your ‘Star Crest’ allows you to skydive with groups of 10 or more people. Learn more about earning your Star Crest and performing well on larger flatfly formations in the APF guide below:

My experience of a tandem skydive was for my 40th Birthday. I could not imagine possibly enjoying myself any more than what I did today. Thank you to my tandem guide Belgy and the video guys Sam & Alex.
