Two recommendations (even if this is an old thread) make sure you:

1) Understand that when you start with one school like US Sailing, that you may not be able to do a more advanced course with ASA without taking an additional certification test and paying an additional $100 or more.

2) Make sure the actual instructor teaching the course is certified by US Sailing or ASA not just the School's owner who signs your certificate.

3) If you don't own a boat, crew with others or charter/rent a suitable boat and gets some experience before you take a more advanced course.

Lesson learned.
