Safety, must always be the number one concern of all operators. Realizing this, BCI offers in-depth training courses for everyone in your staff, and even regulatory bodies who are responsible for the inspections of each site. The training courses BCI offers meets or exceeds CBA, NABA, BERSA, SANZ and Australian specifications. BCI is one of the few companies approved by the NABA and CBA to certify competency of operators trained in accordance with their respective safety codes.

The course is very comprehensive. By the end of it, you will have all the information needed to run your jump site safely, without further supervision, as well as all the information required to write your site operations manual. We typically bring in three of our jump masters to do the training and stay for 1 week. For the remainder of the course a single Jump Master remains to manage the operation, until it can be run without them, and the required number of jumps as per the applicable safety code is achieved.
