According to Sevierville Skydive, there are different training programs available when it comes to skydiving. The original course was known as military or static line program training where a skydiver is taught to exit the airplane while wearing a parachute that automatically deploys thanks to a tethered line.
Sevierville Skydive explains that the United States Parachute Association uses the accelerated and freefall program that utilizes two teachers or jumpmasters who dive alongside the student. This occurs at 10,000 to 12,000 feet above ground. The skydiving instructors teach the student how to maintain stability while a series of training tasks are performed. During this time, the teachers will also show the student how to deploy the parachute.
The tandem-training program offered by Sevierville Skydive uses a parachute harness that is made to carry two skydivers. The Instructor, who is at the back, and the student who is in the front. This is the safest way to learn how to skydive as you are under the control of a professionally licensed skydiver from Sevierville Skydive.
