ASA 101 Exam

Is there a way to take just the exam portion of this certification, without having to do the actual class. My buddy can already sail and just needs the cert to show to a charter company. any suggestions.

Has he explicitly contacted the charter company? I found out quite by accident that most don't require it if you can demonstrate competence.

Any ASA school will allow you to "challenge" the exam, you just take the test for a fee. I'd think most charter companies would like 101,103 & 104 certs (Bareboat) however if your friend has a sailing "resume" the charter company may be good with just that and a "check-out" by them.
Andy got here first, he must know how to type with more than 2 fingers.

I just finished the 101-103 5-day class. I also knew how to sail, but I found the class to be very confidence inspiring. Docking and anchoring on some else's boat is very worthwhile. All the rest was good also. I am now very confident with my wife and sons on board, if anything unexpected pops up. Good luck with the challenge.
