What is GUE Fundamentals? How does it differ from basic SCUBA courses offered by other agencies?
GUE Fundamentals may be conducted in a single tank for recreational divers; technical divers interested in advanced GUE training will use twin (double) tanks. To enter GUE Fundamentals, individuals must hold an Open Water rating from a recognized agency (most major agencies are acceptable). GUE training focuses on foundational skills, including theory and practical application of buoyancy, trim, teamwork, rescue skills, nitrox and other breathing gases, gas consumption, dive planning, equipment configuration, decompression theory, and more. GUE Fundamentals dives are video-recorded and used as a teaching tool to help improve diving skills.
