Some of the documents included here are courtesy of the British Parachute Association (BPA). All updates issued by the BPA will be included here to ensure a one stop location for all your rigging needs.

Parachute riggers are qualified for all general maintenance and repair work and the manufacture of component parts. They are not cleared to work on reserve canopies, reserve containers or reserve component parts. They are not cleared to work on harness manufacture or harness repair, or equipment modifications.

All those attending the parachute riggers course must hold an approved packing certificate and an advanced packing certificate. They must also be qualified as a basic rigger or be registered as a basic riggers, therefore, it's assumed that all candidates are conversant with the subjects in the Approved Packers, the Advanced Packers and the Basic Riggers knowledge base.


Safety Tip - Premature reserve deployments are far too common, yet it's one of the easiest malfunctions to avoid.
