GUE Fundamentals Part 1 & 2 *NEW*

For the first time, GUE Fundamentals can now be taken in 2 parts. The 2 part Fundamentals class is designed for three purposes:

  1. Allows students to explore GUE training before committing to a full Fundamentals class.
  2. Accommodates students traveling from out of town and/or with scheduling challenges to break the class up into 2 sections.
  3. Provides students who may require additional practice to develop a stable platform opportunity to do so.

Part 1 of this class provides students with an introduction to GUE training. Students have the option to carry on with Part 2 at a later date. GUE Fundamentals Part 1 replaces what was formerly offered as a GUE Primer.

The GUE Fundamentals program is designed to cultivate the essential skills required by all sound diving practice. Included among its course outcomes are: providing the recreational diver, who does not desire further diver training, with an opportunity to advance his/her basic diving skills; training divers in the theory and practice of Nitrox; providing divers with aspirations for more advanced diver training with the tools that will contribute to a greater likelihood of success; and providing non-GUE trained divers with a gateway into GUE training. The outcome of the GUE Fundamentals program will provide you with the capability and confidence to help you better enjoy diving in the Emerald Ocean!
