GUE Membership

Support our MISSION

Membership in GUE is a great way for you to refine your knowledge and benefit from first-hand news of GUE dive communities all over the world while supporting our mission. Your membership provides essential safeguards that allow us to maintain our nonprofit status while extending the quality of our programs and initiatives.

Membership is not the same as GUE certification: you do not need one for the other, but we encourage you to do both! Whether you’re a recent student who loved your GUE course or you’re just learning about the organization and want to support us, we hope you will become a member at the level that best fits your budget and training goals. Membership offers many benefits in return for your support, including discounts on GUE merchandise purchased through GUE.com, digital access to training and supplemental materials, access to GUE's quarterly journal Quest, and free course registrations!

We encourage you to join GUE and participate with us in our joint commitment to excellence in all things aquatic.
