Excellence in Outdoor Leadership!

NZOIA is the qualification body for 9 outdoor disciplines. There are 3 levels to each qualification, which are recognised nationally as the industry standard. 

NZOIA has developed outdoor instructing and guiding in New Zealand into a profession, through a commitment to training, standards, currency, and a code of conduct. Assessment, through formal peer review of instruction and guiding practices, has improved our way of working. We are responsible for promoting the highest standards of outdoor instruction and guiding, and striving to ensure that outdoor activity participants enjoy quality experiences.
