In DeLand the AFF instructors keep all student logbooks on those blue sheets of paper (basically looks like a logbook on a sheet of paper, with room for 7 jumps). For all my jumps they started out asking me how the jump went and what I remembered, then showed me the blue sheet and explained what they had written down and went over the jump from their point of view.
When you graduate AFF they'll give you a copy of that blue sheet so you can copy everything into your logbook.
Not cool, bro! Not cool! Your logbook is too important a tool and record to be so easily dismissed! This is your only record of your jumps. If you decided to go elsewhere, do you think the dropzone you go to will take your word about what AFF level you were on? To not even know you should have one... is mindboggling.
Of course, there's no way for you to know how important it is, if they don't tell you. I'm going to assume that it's (really) bad business process and not malicious intent that causes them to do that. But at the very least you should take it upon yourself to maintain your record of your jumps, and ask your instructors to sign off in YOUR logbook. If they complain because they have to write some shit twice, well that's really their problem and not yours.
