Normally, a company will accept your certification from another location with no problem as long as the rest of your sailing experience meets their criteria (some companies require a lot, others just require you to be breathing and have a high bank balance); the bigger question is how confident you feel sailing in a place you've never been before? (One solution is to take the class near home (NewEngland), then hire a captain for the first day only in the charter location (BVI?))

You could also try a captained learn-to-sail charter AS your BVI vacation ...
