HHC/1-507 PIR (United States Army Jumpmaster School) trains personnel in the skills necessary to jumpmaster a combat-equipped jump and the proper attaching, jumping, and releasing of combat and individual equipment while participating in an actual jump that is proficient in the duties and responsibilities of the Jumpmaster and Safety; procedures for rigging individual equipment containers and door bundles; personnel parachute components by their specific nomenclature and characteristics; procedures and standards required to conduct a Jumpmaster personnel inspection (JMPI); the duties and responsibilities of the Drop Zone Safety Officer; the presentation of the Jumpmaster briefing and sustained airborne training (SAT); and the execution of the duties of a Jumpmaster and Safety from a USAF aircraft during a day/night combat equipment jump.

The first week of the course students will receive classes on a verity of different topics ranging from different types of aircraft, Drop zones, and containers.  The first testable event is the nomenclature test for all items related to the T-11 parachute.  Students must be able to pass the test by identifying the correct item and have proper spelling.  Students will begin to learn the JMPI sequence and receive a walkthrough of donning and rigging of the T-11 Parachute as well as how the JMPI is preformed, to include a demonstration of conducting a passing JMPI sequence in test conditions.  Students will spend much of their time conducting JMPI circles to gain proficiency.  During this week, the students must also pass the prejump test by being able to recite the entire prejump training brief verbatim.

   The second week of the course the students will continue to practice the JMPI sequence while simultaneously learning the possible deficiencies.  The students continue to receive classes required to be a jump master.  The student will have to pass a written exam over all the course material besides procedures within the aircraft (PWAC).  Students will continue to conduct JMPI circles with time hacks and deficiencies getting them ready for the JMPI test.  The last day of the week will be the JMPI pretest. If the student passes the pretest, they do not have to repeat the test.

   The third and final week of the course will have the student continuing to conduct JMPI circles as well as the JMPI test and retest.  If students received 80 points or higher on all previous tests and have no administrative infractions, they will have gained “re-entry” and have two additional attempts to pass the JMPI test.  The JMPI test consist of three jumpers, two non- tactical jumpers and one combat equipped jumper.  The student must successfully inspect all three jumpers in five minutes and miss no major rigging deficiencies and no more than two minor deficiencies.  The final graded event is PWAC.  Student will receive the PWAC class and then execute actions in the aircraft.  Once the final graded event is complete the remaining students will graduate as jump masters.
