About this program

Join a 16-week Expedition Leader training program and take a step towards an exciting career. Starting from Wales, you’ll head off with your team to the jungles of Costa Rica. You’ll push your limits, and be part of an unforgettable experience!


The course culminates with the real group leading experience. In order to test your skills to the maximum, you will be leading other groups for a minimum of 2 weeks providing them with basic jungle training, as well as trek and rescue scenarios. We also typically trek from Costa Rica into Nicaragua. On successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a pass mark and then be eligible for work with Gapforce as either a Leader or Assistant Leader on one of our global projects. You will also receive your log book complete with your certificates and detailed feedback from your instructors on your performance throughout the course, a valuable keepsake for your future career path.
