I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the course, it was definitely, at times, one of the most challenging things I have ever done - but at the same time hugely rewarding. The course itself was very varied and very practical. I feel I have learnt a wide range of leadership, bush craft and communication skills that will be of huge benefit to me in the future, whether I decide to peruse a career in the expedition leader field or not.
Follow in the footsteps of Bruce Parry to learn key survival, leadership and management skills through 16 challenging weeks in the Welsh mountains and the Costa Rican jungle.
