A question that is commonly asked by people who have never chartered before is, “Am I qualified to bareboat?
In terms of qualifying, there is no particular licensing or certification required to bareboat charter in the Caribbean. What the charter companies primarily look for is skippering experience on a boat similar in size to the one you are chartering. A “bareboat certification” or “live-aboard cruising” course by ASA or other credible standard, is valuable, but without additional skippering experience, is not normally sufficient qualification. Prior “bareboat” experience is good. If you have a reference or documentation showing that you have “bare-boated” before, by all means include it.
