This ASA 205 IQC is the fourth instructor-level clinic in the ASA keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 105, Coastal Navigation course.
The Instructor Qualification Clinics (IQC) are not training courses but rather an evaluation of the candidate’s knowledge, skills, and ability to teach ASA classes. This ASA 205 IQC is the fourth instructor-level clinic in the ASA keelboat training system and certifies an individual for teaching the ASA 105, Coastal Navigation course. This is a class room only course that has no ‘on the water’ evaluations. ASA Instructor Certification Standards parallel those required for students but at a much higher level and with an emphasis on teaching skills. Candidates are evaluated by a certified ASA Instructor Evaluator and must score 90% or more on the written examination and pass a rigorous oral examination.
Candidates must be a current ASA member, or willing to reactivate their membership.
Candidates must be ASA 201 & 203 Instructor Certified and have completed the ASA 105 student course.

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 your USCG Captain’s License.
