Just to pick a nit here; ASA will ONLY issue certifications based on your signature IF you offer the class through an ASA Affiliated School. An ASA certified instructor can't put an ad on CraigsList, and offer ASA sanctioned certification training.

Ed,

That is certainly true, and ASA has made it more difficult over the past few years for the small operator to function as a "school", requiring for example that any school must have a physical store-front location. I also seem to remember they said an ASA school could not also offer US Sailing certs. Anyway, recent practices have served to weed out the number of small operators, sort of like culling the herd. But as I said, even when attending an ASA school, ASA still works off the signature of the approving ASA-certified instructor, this being the unique value of such instructor certifications.
