How to Apply
There are five guiding pathways that you can apply for with the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association. On submitting your Application to the NZMGA you are applying for a specific pathway.
IMPORTANT: Please note, your application for all Pathways will only be accepted when it is accompanied by ALL pre-requisite information and documentation. Please ensure you include all requirements with your application.
Assessments are not guaranteed until a candidate has received a confirmation email 8 weeks prior to the assessment. The NZMGA reserves the right to cancel any assessment prior to candidates receiving the confirmation email.
In order to be considered for entry on the New Zealand Mountain Guides training scheme, you must meet the requirements.
Submit your completed application form for your chosen guiding pathway to the NZMGA. We will check your application and be in touch shortly.
Once we've accepted your application, you'll become a candidate for the next course (if there are no spaces, you'll be waitlisted on a first-paid-first-served basis).
