GUE FOUNDATIONAL TRAINING
Beginning with the End in Mind
You build a house starting with a solid foundation, you learn to run by first learning to crawl, dive training is no different. GUE (Global Underwater Explorers) Foundational programs (GUE Recreational 1, Fundamentals, Doubles Primer, and Drysuit Primer) are designed to create a stable platform and an overall confident and competent diver. With this solid foundation, you can progress into the area of diving most appealing to you, whether it's caves, wrecks, deep walls or shallow reefs. GUE Foundational training will set you up for success and overall increased enjoyment in all of your diving.
The GUE Fundamentals course is designed to cultivate the essential skills required by all sound diving practice. Included among its course outcomes are: to provide the recreational diver, who does not desire further diver training, with an opportunity to advance his/her basic diving skills; to train divers in the theory and practice of Nitrox; to provide divers with aspirations for more advanced diver training with the tools that will contribute to a greater likelihood of success; and to provide non-GUE trained divers with a gateway into GUE training.
