ASA Approved Train­ing & Cer­ti­fi­ca­tions IN US

Whether you own a boat or do not own one, ASA has devel­oped a great cur­ricu­lum to start your sail­ing jour­ney through its Learn to Sail pro­grams which are fun, chal­leng­ing and if you plan for a career, reward­ing too. The Amer­i­can Sail­ing Asso­ci­a­tion (ASA) affil­i­ated schools pro­vide much more than teach­ing you how to sail. They also pro­vide you with in-​depth under­stand­ing of the envi­ron­ment, safety (the most impor­tant fac­tor in any adven­ture sports), mechan­ics (tech­ni­cal train­ing) and skills to become a sea­soned sailor.

ASA pro­vides stan­dards for pro­gres­sive sail­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­grams, includ­ing Keel­boat, Small Boat and Mul­ti­hull. The stan­dards are intended to be a min­i­mum set of require­ments. ASA affil­i­ate sail­ing schools and instruc­tors may choose to include addi­tional require­ments if they wish to empha­size knowl­edge or skills appro­pri­ate to local waters, con­di­tions or prac­tice vessels.

Euro­pean /​Mediter­ranean Char­ter­ing Cer­tifi­cates: ASA also pro­vides Inter­na­tional Pro­fi­ciency sail­ing cer­tifi­cate in the USA. The cer­tifi­cate is use­ful for enthu­si­asts who wish to char­ter in Euro­pean or Mediter­ranean mar­itime waters. It pro­vides a doc­u­men­tary proof of bare­boat char­ter com­pe­tency for Mediter­ranean char­ter­ing companies.
