  Safety Tips

Relative work is a large part of many jumper's skydiving career. Each jumper acquires skills that enable him to perform RW. Skills are directly related to tasks on a dive. Diving skills are acquired by doing diving slots. Floating skills are acquired by doing floating slots. Base skills are acquired by doing base slots. Each slot has certain tasks. All of the tasks are performed within a hierarchy of tasks. That is, certain tasks must be performed in a certain sequence in order to perform all of the tasks for the slot.
