A question of understanding: Overseas rating conversion and challenging? Can't Post

Looking over the IRM, it looks like I should be able to convert my Australian coach rating to USPA:

Quote:
1. For persons with a current non-USPA Coach rating or
equivalent or an expired USPA Coach rating
a. make at least one satisfactory USPA Coach Rating
Course evaluation jump with a USPA Instructor or
IE who has served as a USPA Coach Course
Evaluator
b. assist in at least one complete first-jump course
c. attend a USPA rating renewal seminar
d. pass the Coach Course written exam with a score
of at least 80 percent
e. non-USPA Coaches must include a rating card or
other proof of the non-USPA Coach rating to
USPA Headquarters along with the Coach
proficiency card

and after that, I'd be able to challenge for a static line rating even without having a foreign instructor rating?

Quote:
2. For all others persons, under the direct supervision of
an IAD or Static-Line IE
a. Demonstrate satisfactory knowledge of static line
rigging procedures for both direct-bag and static
line assist (static line only).
b. Demonstrate competence to gear up and check
a student (not required for current USPA
Instructors rated in another discipline).
c. Demonstrate competence to spot for a student (not
required for current USPA Instructors rated in
another discipline).
d. Receive personal instruction from a USPA IAD/SL
instructor (per rating sought) on the following
emergency areas:


IAD/Static-Line
(1) Aircraft
(2) Static line student in tow
e. Complete one satisfactory IAD or Static-Line
Category B training evaluation.
f. Complete one satisfactory Category D freefall and
canopy training session and air evaluation (not
required for current USPA Instructors rated in
another discipline)..
g. Pass the IAD or Static-Line Instructor written exam
with a score of at least 80%
h. Conduct at least two IAD or Static-Line jumps



Am I interpreting this correctly?

Yes, but for the the S/L I, you also need to get all the prerequisites on the card done.

Easy as if you have equivalent ratings and currency
