nolatom is correct for US waters. If you are instructing outside of the jurisdiction of the USCG, no ticket is needed.

With the USCG waters, I believe anything with an engine requires at least a six-pack.


In Canada we have no equivalent, so i do not have or need a masters ticket.

That's my understanding as well. I took 101 on an inland lake, and the instructor did not have any kind of license. I took 103, 104, and 106 on Lake Superior and those instructors had at least an OUPV license.

The only exception that I don't think anyone has mentioned is that, if neither you, nor the boat's owner, are receiving any consideration for providing the lessons, then you don't need to have a USCG license.

Re: ASA instructor certification?

The bottom line value of an ASA instructor certification is that ASA will issue ASA class certifications to individuals based on your signature.

Certified...in several regards...

Re: ASA instructor certification?

Jack, The 1st clinic that I see offered is on March 5, 2014 in Sausalito, Ca. Is that what you're seeing? You could try to get the place asking you to get the cert. to host a clinic.

I am corresponding with an IE to find out what I need to do.

The school is talking about a clinic in the spring. They have a couple of cats, I might be able to do something then. A one day trip to Sausalito is pretty prohibitive.

Re: ASA instructor certification?

Jack,

You're not thinking Sausalito in the right way... If you are able to stretch your trip to cover a weekend, I'd be happy to take you out sailing on Freya! San Francisco does offer some other diversions, there is also the wine country, Yosemite...

Hmmm

San Francisco is one of my favourite US cities. I have been there a couple times. I have even sailed on the Bay.

True dat. But generally lessons leading to any kind of certificate involve money being paid, directly or (in my case) indirectly to the capt/instructor.

Anyone can, of course, teach their friends to sail (it's encouraged ;-). And sharing expenses for that type of sail doesn't constitute "consideration", says the Coast Guard.

Re: ASA instructor certification?

I have a new arrow in my quiver.

ASA did the crossover from Sail Canada for 201, 203, 204, 205, and 206. I passed the 214 exam yesterday.
