|NEW ZEALAND'S EDUCATION
Hillary Outdoors is a not-for-profit charitable trust with a long history of providing high quality training programmes for those wanting careers in the outdoors, or for those already in the industry wanting to upskill.
Hillary Outdoors differs from most other tertiary programmes because we are a full time Outdoor Education Centre and design our programmes around the real needs of the industry. The benefits of learning within a working centre are priceless, students have the opportunity to see how a centre is run and to learn from current instructors. In addition to this, there is also work experience with other organisations which broadens students’ experiences and future job prospects.
There are two tertiary courses available; the Certificate in Outdoor Adventure Skills and Leadership Level 4, and the National Diploma in Outdoor Recreation (Instruction) Level 5. Both programmes are based at our Tongariro Centre, surrounded by some of the best scenery in New Zealand.
