Sailing Schools/Certifications

I am a beginner wishing to enter the world of sailing, can u all help me with a couple of questions for now?

1. What are the sailing schools that you would recommend in north western/rockies area (I live in Wyoming) in particular, or nationwide in general?
2. Which certifications I should aim for, US Sailing or ASA? Why?

ASA and US Sailing both offer similar programs. ASA is a for profit company that has many schools using it''s program throughout the US. US Sailing is the National Governing Body for the sport of sailing in the US and is a non-profit organization. It doesn''t have as many schools, but, it has some of the biggest.

Here''s an article on the SailNet website that may help with the decision, http://www.sailnet.com/collections/articles/index.cfm?articleid=matthe0584. Also, I would check each organizations web site for a list of schools in you area.
