ASA Challenge-In

COST: $275/person/challenge-in
DESCRIPTION: For those sailors with experience who would like to earn certifications and/or join our sailing club, and also feel that their skills are adequate for the skill levels expected for ASA certifications, they can challenge into any ASA course instead of taking the full course. This entails taking the written test and water practical with an instructor (for water based courses). Expect to take about 2 to 4 hrs for each class challenge-in desired. Books and student materials are included in price, along with ASA membership and certifications once the applicant successfully completes the course.
