The original post was learning how to sail to satisfy a charter company's requirements. While the bar of most of them is really low, depending on what size boat you want to charter if they don't recognize the sailing certificate because it isn't with ASA or US Sailing or if you only sail small boats on lakes, they may make you hire a captain for your trip or, at a minimum, make you pay a couple hundred for a half day of lessons on the boat you wish to charter.
