How to get your IPC Card

ASA is proud to offer the first International Proficiency Certificate (IPC) for sailors available in the United States. This certificate is mandatory when chartering in most European / Mediterranean waters. It serves as proof of bareboat charter competency for Mediterranean chartering companies, many of whom require the proficiency information displayed in a different format than the ASA Log Book.

ASA strongly recommends you apply for an IPC if you are chartering in the Mediterranean as well as the inland waterways of Europe and northern Europe.

Only sailors who have been certified through ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising can get the International Proficiency Certificate by completing the application, submitting a passport photo, and paying the application fee. You can complete the application 100% online. The IPC is valid for 5 years from date of issue.

Testimonials

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!
