You are confusing training with experience...

ASA courses are good for what they do...

The USCG Capt. License is an excellent theory test...

However, a USCG license and every course ASA teach will not give you the experience to handle my boat in a Force 9 gale or get her into somewhere at night, in a dense fog, with a broken radar and chart plotter, in a 2 knot cross current!

Good luck with your plans. The 4-5 month RYA courses are good but they need to be done in serious tidal waters in winter not sunny climes. I do not know of any equivalent US courses.
