This membership benefit MUST be used during the one-year period of the membership with which it is associated. No membership benefits may be rolled over, banked, or in any way valid more than one year after purchase of a membership, even if it is renewed without interruption. For example, you cannot redeem two free course registrations after renewing the Gold membership you have had for one year already. Additionally, free course registration benefits cannot be applied to registrations purchased before the period of membership. These rules apply to all levels of membership that grant free registrations (Gold, Scholar, and Platinum). If this conflicts with your training plans, remember that course registrations are valid for nine months from the date of purchase. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact GUE HQ as soon as possible.
How do I redeem my free course registration member benefit?
If you are attempting to redeem your free course registration fee that is part of a Gold membership, please contact HQ at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-762-DIVE (3483) and we will activate that for you. Free registration discounts for Scholar and Platinum members should be automatically applied at checkout, but please contact us right away if this feature doesn't appear to be working.
