This ASA 203 IQC is the second instructor-level clinic in the ASA keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising course.

- Candidates must be a current ASA member, or willing to reactivate their membership.
- Candidates must be ASA 201 Instructor Certified and have completed the ASA 103 student course.
