New Zealand Instructor Course

Become a wilderness educator with NOLS. The New Zealand Instructor Course will build on the technical outdoor and leadership skills you already have during a 21-day hiking expedition. During the course, you will have opportunities to fine-tune your teaching skills through an in-depth examination of the NOLS curriculum. *Only those with the permanent legal right to work in New Zealand are eligible. 

This instructor course will take place later in 2019—stay tuned for updates.

Applications for the 2019 instructor course will be opening soon. Learn more about the New Zealand instructor course here.
