Hi Elia

If you do not have any experience as a raft guide, there are two ways to become a guide. One through a company as a trainee, or through the Tai Poutini Polytech course. Alternatively if you are already a trained guide then you will need to be assessed to a NZ raft guide award.

If you would like to write to me at nzraftingassociation@xtra.co.nz I can give you more information about what is the best option for you.

Try Tai Poutini Polytechnic, they are offering short course options.
