The upskill costs below include a hard copy of the new STA Mermaid and Mono Fin manual and your qualification certificate emailed to you by the STA.
Upskill between now and the end of March for just £50, as long as you are a member of MermaidsUK (cost £24 per year)

If you are a MermaidsUK Instructor, please contact us for potential further discounts on your upskill process.
How can I upskill?
You can upskill by joining a registered course run by MermaidsUK or via distance learning, where all assessment coursework will need to be emailed and a video sent in for the practical part of the assessment.
If you wish to upskill, please email firstname.lastname@example.org along with your current Mermaid Instructor certificate and chosen upskilling method.
If an Instructor does not upskill they will NOT be a Qualified Mermaid Instructor, due to the STA Level 2 Mermaid and Mono Fin qualification being the first in the UK.
