The difference lies in that a coach, AFF-I, IAD-I, S/L-I, and TI, all teach students. First time jumpers. It makes no sense to me to start an examiner and instructor program where the proposed instructors would be instructing experienced jumpers.
Reading the BSRs, I found it relevant that we as an organization don't actually require a rating to jump with students. If USPA D License holders have the experience to jump with a non-licensed jumper without a rating, are we being consistent in how we evaluate one's ability to supervise learning jumps? Why would teaching someone with 200 jumps require a higher rating than teaching someone with 20?
"Student freefall training for group freefall jumps must be conducted by either A USPA Coach under the supervision of a USPA Instructor or; USPA D license holders provided there is a minimum ratio of one D license holder to one student with a maximum of a 4-way."
