Tandems reserve packing is not part of the advanced packing course, it's an extra qualification that can be added after qualifying as an advanced packer.

All those attending the advanced packers course must hold an approved packing certificate, therefore, it's assumed that all candidates are conversant with the subjects in the Approved Packers knowledge base.

Safety Tip - Control lines wear much faster than canopy suspension lines.
