Fundies Tech Upgrade

Fundamentals Tech Upgrade

Kicking into the current


A Fundamentals Tech Upgrade is a session which allows a GUE Rec 1 or GUE Fundamentals graduate to demonstrate they meet the Fundamentals Technical Rating requirements. If student’s previous GUE training was in a single tank, best results may be achieved by combining a Doubles Primer with the Tech Upgrade.


This upgrade session is useful for a Rec 1 or Fundamentals graduate who wishes to continue to GUE Cave or Technical training.

Duration & Content

  • Half day, primarily in-water evaluation
  • OR Full day or longer, if refinement & coaching needed or combined with Doubles Primer
  • If significant review desired, consider taking Fundamentals Part 2 as a way to review and demonstrate Tech-level readiness
  • In some locations, we offer a Fundies Tweak running parallel to a scheduled Fundamentals class. This is an opportunity for review and Upgrade evaluation.

Requirement Highlights

  • DIGITAL IMAGEMust be an active GUE Rec 1/2/3 or Fundamentals-Rec level diver (card not expired)
  • Can be done at any time. There is NO limitation that a Tech Upgrade has to be achieved within 6 months of your Fundamentals class.
  • Evaluation dives require at least one qualified teammate. This can be another Rec 1 or Fundies-Rec graduate or a GUE Fundies-Tech Rated or higher diver; your instructor cannot play this roll
  • Basic GUE system equipment, including double tanks, primary light, back-up lights, and a back-up mask
  • See Technical Rating skill requirements here
