Clinic Information

The ASA 205 IQC is the fourth instructor-level clinic in the keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 105 Coastal Navigation course at an ASA affiliate school.  This clinic is based in the classroom with no on-the-water skills requirements. However, this certification requires candidates to demonstrate broader knowledge by written examination. When the Instructor Candidate is successful, the Instructor Evaluator signs 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.

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.

    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.

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.
