Clinic Information

The ASA 203 IQC is the second instructor-level clinic in the keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising course at an ASA affiliate school. ASA Instructor Certification Standards parallel those required for students, but at a much higher level with emphasis on teaching. ASA 203 certification requires the Instructor Candidate to score 90% or more on the BCCI written examination and to pass an on-the-water skills evaluation by a certified ASA Instructor Evaluator. When the Candidate is successful, the Instructor Evaluator signs the certification page in the Candidate's log book and the ASA issues the certification stickers by mail.

Price: $495

2020 ASA IQC Schedule

NOTE: Even though you can earn your ASA Instructor Certificate without holding a US Merchant Marine Credential (captain's license), you will not be eligible to work as an instructor on US federal waters without credentials/licensure.

    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.

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.
