No idea but my AFF instructor did levels 1-7 on one day with a student which isn't half bad.

If you mean in terms of time I'm not sure, but in terms of number of jumps, there is a minimum of 17 (or maybe 18) jumps, just to get enough to progress through each stage. At least this was the case when I read all the stuff from my 1st jump course november last year. This may only be in the uk though - I'm not sure about elsewhere.

I presume there have been people out there who have completed it in this many jumps, or not many over

I know i guy that got his in 15 jumps, but you have to combine exercises and jump from nearly altitude to maximise freefall time.
