Out of curiosity, are you just doing ISPA? If so, why. While things may have changed, I understood that a lot of the charter companies wouldn't recognize it.
I am teach both ISPA and CYA courses and am on the board of ISPA. I also teach for Island Cruising, Nanaimo Yacht Charters and Desolation Sound. I have also done skippered charters / lessons for Blue Pacific.
I have never had a charter company indicate that they would not recognize an ISPA course. In BC most charter companies offer ISPA courses. Aside from Island Cruising, ISPA courses are offered Nanaimo Yacht Charters, Blue Pacific, Cooper Boating and Desolation Sound.
ISPA certified students have chartered all over the world with virtually every charter company.
