    GUE Fundamentals in Chicago Area

    Click here for more information on the GUE Fundamentals Course.

    GUE Fundamentals, affectionately called “Fundies,” introduces certified divers to the GUE method of diving, including GUE System equipment (backplate, wing, harness, long hose, fins, etc.), stable platform, propulsion, and basic skills useful for everyday diving and more advanced diving alike. Fundamentals is the gateway for non-GUE divers to qualify for advanced GUE training above the primer level classes. This course offers excellent training, practice, and feedback in skill refinement regardless if certification is earned or future GUE classes desired.

    Skill refinement class suitable for certified divers of all levels; both those seeking further GUE training and those taking a single class to tweak skills. Nitrox training included. For more information, please contact Mer at mer@gue.com .

    GUE Primer in Chicago Area

    Click here for more information on the GUE Primer Course.

    This 2-day extended GUE Primer introduces certified divers to the GUE method of diving, including GUE System equipment (backplate, wing, harness, long hose, fins, etc.). Focus is on buoyancy, trim, stability, control, propulsion, maneuvering, pre-dive checks, team diving, situational awareness, and why we do these things the way we do them with this specific equipment set-up. These basic skills are useful for both the 30′ reef enthusiast and the deep cave explorer alike!


    GUE Primer is a great introduction to GUE diving for certified divers of all levels. Want to see if additional GUE Training is for you? Want to know what to practice to prepare for a Fundamentals class? Dive a backplate and wing for first time (rental gear also available)? Just want to pick up a few tricks or refine a few diving skills? Then this class is for you! For more information, please contact Mer at mer@gue.com .
