Clinic Information

The ASA 204 IQC is the third instructor-level clinic in the keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 104, Bareboat 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. Certification requires the Instructor Candidate to pass a written and oral examination and 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.

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.
