The Language Enabled Airman Program (LEAP) is designed and managed by the Air Force Culture and Language Center (AFCLC) to sustain, enhance and utilize the existing language skills and talents of Airmen. The goal of LEAP is to develop a core group of general-purpose force (GPF) Airmen across specialties and careers possessing the capability to communicate in one or more foreign languages. To become a participant in LEAP, Airmen must already have moderate to high levels of proficiency in a foreign language specified on the Air Force Strategic Language List (SLL), as measured by Defense Language Proficiency Tests (DLPTs) or Oral Proficiency Interviews (OPIs). The SLL is managed by the Air Force's Language, Regional Expertise and Culture Program Office (AF/A1D-LREC) at the Pentagon. Interested Airmen should contact their local Test Control Officer to check if their language is on the Air Force SLL. TCOs are usually located with the local Education Office. For more information on the SLL or on language proficiency testing, see the AF/A1D-LREC A1D-LREC information here.
