About Us


The NZ Radio Training School (NZRTS) is located in both Auckland and Wellington.

Owned by Whitireia New Zealand Limited, NZRTS is one of the most respected radio training schools in New Zealand.

Two programmes are offered: the National Certificate in Radio (Foundation Skills), which is offered from our Wellington campus, and the Diploma in Radio Journalism (with an optional endorsement in Broadcasting), which is offered from our Wellington and Auckland campuses. These programmes prepare you for a career in the high energy world of commercial radio. You will learn copywriting, audio production, radio sales, podcasting, promotions, multimedia and live broadcasting.

We can help students to choose from a range of electives, including radio documentaries, creative broadcasting or industry internships (where available).

Students not only study in a classroom but also in purpose-built studios designed to provide a complete radio experience. Professional tutors, all with comprehensive backgrounds in radio and journalism, offer students highly interactive learning opportunities through practical hands-on study.

NZRTS keeps pace with industry, and in-turn, offers training in tune with industry requirements.
