The ASA 218 IQC certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 118, Docking Endorsement Course at an ASA affilate 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 written and oral examinations and pass an on-the-water skills evaluation by a certified ASA Instructor Evaluator. When the Candidate is successful, the Instructor Evaluator signs the Candidate's log book and the ASA issues the certification stickers by mail.
Clinic Price: $495
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.
