Basic riggers are qualified to repair all types of parachute equipment under supervision, however, they are limited to working within the training syllabus until qualified as a parachute rigger.
Basic riggers usually work in a rigging loft for a Parachute Rigger or above to gain experience, before returning for the examination phase.
All those attending the basic riggers course must hold an approved packing certificate and an advanced packing certificate, therefore, it's assumed that all candidates are conversant with the subjects in the Approved Packers and the Advanced Packers knowledge base.
