Hi Squeak.

It looks pretty simple assuming that Australian Skydiving is part of the FAI.

This quote is from the SIM. For part 3 you can look on the USPA website and download a copy of the license application form. I am guessing that in order to "meet the requirements" you need to do the exams, so you probably would want to download a copy of the SIM as it includes the relevant FAA regulations.

Federation Aeronautique Internationale (foreign non-
USPA) to USPA license conversions
a. Jumpers who hold an FAI equivalent license may
apply for USPA equivalent license without completion
of the USPA A License Proficiency Card
or A License Progression Card.
(1) A USPA rated instructor must verify the FAI
license of the applicant.
(2) A copy of the license must be included with
the USPA license application.
(3) All other license requirements for USPA B, C
and D licenses must still be verified and initialed
by a USPA Instructor.
b. The USPA license application and a copy of the
FAI license must be submitted
