I think the sertification programs are both comparable, the big difference is the expertise and style of the instructor, which varies widely by person, ASA or US Sailing or not. You should try to get some student references of the specific instructor, regardless of the reputation of the school, and also, sign up for a class without a crowd...ask when you might be the only student, or maybe one more. You'll get far more out of a class you are the only student, rather than one of four.
