GUE Instructor Development


The GUE Instructor Candidate Path is a multi-step process designed to help candidates further refine their personal dives skills, personal fitness, and academic knowledge, as well as learn how to teach, and gain experience teaching under the wing of an experienced GUE Instructor before undertaking an instructor exam, while maintaining the high quality and standardization for which GUE is famous. Candidates may enter as either GUE Fundamentals or GUE Recreational 1 (Learn-to-Dive) Instructor Candidate.

The first step in this process is to discuss your goals and observe a GUE-gateway class as an intern. Mer is a Fundamentals Instructor Trainer and Rec 1 (Learn-to-Dive) and Rec 2 (AOW) Instructor Evaluator. She can help you decide if GUE is the right path for your diving career and, if appropriate, help you train to become a GUE instructor.

We can also help current Fundamentals instructors become certified to teach Rec 1 and Rec 2. Our philosophy focuses on training with live classes and real students, since our schedule features one of the highest number of GUE Recreational classes offered in the USA.

Mer and Wet Rocks Diving, while also teaching upper-level GUE classes, has remained extremely active teaching Fundamentals and Recreational classes for GUE. In fact, in 2019, Wet Rocks Diving has Fundamentals classes scheduled in 12 different locations across the US continent and Pacific. Inquire today how Wet Rocks Diving can help you begin your GUE instructor journey.
