Qualifications

Applicants for this expedition and traineeship do not need specific qualifications. However, the boat driving courses will only be available to those that hold RYA powerboat handling level 2 or equivalent certification, which must be undertaken prior to arrival in Kenya. GVI's comprehensive training programme will provide expedition members with all the skills necessary for expedition and traineeship life, such as marine survey techniques. All applicants will have to complete a swimming test on arrival at the expedition base (consisting of an unaided 200m surface swim followed by a 10 min float). Everyone must be able to work as part of a team and have a strong interest in wildlife and conservation. Participants must also be enthusiastic, adventurous, have a good sense of humor and be respectful of the host country's environment and cultures.
