About Us

We are a group of dedicated volunteers who will give you the practical skills you need to have an enjoyable and safe time in the New Zealand Outdoors. All of our Instructors are experienced in the outdoors and have industry recognised qualifications.

These dedicated Instructors have real life experience which they use to provide learning from a practical perspective. All of our Instructors are passionate about giving you an experience with some tricks of the trade which you won't find online or in a book.

Outdoor Training NZ has been formed by dedicated industry standard qualified outdoor Instructors who over many years have proved how important practical and theoretical instruction is before you venture into the outdoors.

Our experience shows that every person who goes through one of our quality courses will have a multiplying effect on the community we serve; this is due in part to the effect we can and will have on leaders in schools, tramping clubs, youth groups, and many other outdoor organisations.

The costs incurred with our courses are kept as low as possible because our Instructors are all highly motivated, experienced volunteers who want to share their years of experience with you.
