Extend your skills into diver rescue and emergency management, advanced navigation techniques and the use of advance breathing mixtures!

GUE’s Recreational Diver Level 2 course is a no-decompression course structured to prepare divers for deeper recreational diving while using sound equipment, efficient diving skills, and advanced breathing mixtures. Course outcomes include, but are not limited to: skill cultivation and refinement, familiarity with the theory and practice of decompression, safe use of Nitrox and Triox for extended bottom times, correct ascent procedures, diver rescue (on land, at the surface and underwater), emergency management, and the use of Helium to minimize narcosis, CO2, gas density, and post-dive “nitrogen stress”, as well as advanced navigation techniques.
The Recreational Diver Level 2 course is normally conducted over five days, and includes ten dives and at least fifty hours of instruction, encompassing classroom, land drills, and in-water work.
