  • I had an absolute great time with the Rookie academy! Everyone is so friendly and they really do go above and beyond to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. The accommodation provided was very nice. I really liked the location of everything as it was very easy to get around. I would recommend anyone looking to study to become an instructor to study with Rookies!

  • Be you a Boarder or a Skier the Rookie Academy has the greatest success rate in New Zealand. This fact will resonate massively when you turn up for your exams as the candidates from other academy?s always commented on how prepared we are. This fact on exam day is a phenomenal confidence booster and will justify your choice in an instant. The Snow-sports industry is unlike any other. I have experienced many roles and employment opportunities come via the links that you build through your training. Keep this in mind as the Rookies tend to know everyone and are always keen to assist.
