Military Tandem Master (MTM)
Military Tandem Tethered Bundle (MTTB)
MFF qualified parachutists with the pre requisite number of jumps (usually set by the parent unit) can undergo the military tandem master course (MTM). During phase 1, candidates will complete & pass the skills needed to become a basic military tandem instructor. Phase 2 will teach candidates how to carry a passenger who is equipped with a rucksack, weapon and oxygen. This skill must be mastered in a daytime environment before moving to night operations. Successful candidates who pass the phase 2 will then start the third and final phase. Here candidates are taught to jump the military tandem tethered bundle (MTTB), a means of parachuting up to 400 lbs of equipment into theater. These jumps will be conducted in both day and night configuration.
