Experience IQC 203 Basic Coastal Cruising in Norfolk, VA with SailTime Chesapeake Bay South

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 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. 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, pass a rigorous oral examination, and demonstrate extensive on-the-water skills.
