This is a pay what you can course! It's a basic introduction to mermaid safety, for recreational mers, those looking to get into mermaiding, and professionals who want to brush up on their skills. Each course takes aprox 40 hours of instructional design and development to create for you. I track down resources from experts both in the mermaid field, the swimming and freediving field, academics, and the safety field.
It takes a lot of time, resources, and energy to create these resources for you. Please pay what you can afford for it! Whether it's 1$ or more. A course like this would typically cost $25-$30.
Run Time: 30-45minutes
This is the first module in a series on mermaid safety. This is an introduction that is good for recreational mers, mers who are just getting started, mers who want to model underwater, or those who don't know where to start when it comes to safety. It's also an excellent course for those who want to start a business. This course focuses on your personal safety. This is not a course for the safety of others, that will follow!
