International Proficiency Certificate – $59

This certificate is useful when chartering in European / Mediterranean waters.  It serves as proof of bareboat charter competency for Mediterranean chartering companies, many of which require the proficiency information displayed in a different format  than the ASA Log Book.

Is it required for chartering?  If so, where?
Kiriakoulis Charters accepts this certificate throughout its 300+ location charter network in the Mediterranean (Greece, Italy, Croatia, France, Turkey and the Caribbean) as adequate proof of bareboat skipper proficiency.  This document is not required per se by government agencies in these countries, but greatly helps in streamlining the paperwork.  As countries differ in their requirements, travelers should always check with their destination prior to attempting to charter.

Who can get one?
Only ASA members who have completed through ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising, are eligible to order the certificate.  One must be a current member of ASA to be issued the certificate.

How do I get one?
You can get this through your local ASA school or directly through ASA.
