Question about renewing a rating Can't Post

I am looking for an answer to a question. I was an IAD instructor but have let my rating lapse. What must I do to reinstate my rating?

Did you also let your USPA lapse? I don't have the answer in front of me, but it's covered in the IRM.

No, I didn't let my USPA lapse. I asked my DZO about it and he emailed a USPA director, but haven't received a response

I tried cutting and pasting your answer here, but had no success.

You can find your answer in this heavily abridged (albeit FREE) version of the IRM (see page 80)

USPA says find an I-E, put out one student and take the test.
I say depends on how long it's lapsed and how much you used it prior to lapse.
If you haven't worked with students for years and/or didn't do much with the rating when you had it, I might want more.
A couple of years ago a guy wanted to renew an I rating that had lapsed over 10 years. I had him go through a complete rating course.
Bottom line, it's not just what USPA says, it's what it takes to make an I-E comfortable signing you off.
