The schools in this area will let you challenge the course. At our club I think it is around 125.00 to take an instructor out and challenge the skills at whatever ASA level. I personally have not done that opting to take the course. Mainly because I can barely spell sailboat, let alone skipper one.

But whether it is US Sailing or ASA certs and skipper logs I have heard haveing them makes chartering much easier.
