NZPPA BOOTCAMP 2024 (Early Bird Rate) – 9 May 2024

– Let’s get the next generation of payrollers moving!

Overview of this year’s BOOTCAMP 2024

Since 2021 NZPPA has been running its annual online BOOTCAMP changing to the new format from 2022 with BOOTCAMP focusing on the essential skills for new payroll practitioners and experienced payrollers wanting a short sharp refresher.

BOOTCAMP is not aimed to replace formal training but should be seen as an essential professional development step for your new payroll practitioners and as an annual refresher for your payroll team.

Your BOOTCAMP instructors are seasoned payroll professionals with years of experience in operational payroll.

BOOTCAMP can be viewed as the live event or attendees can view the recorded session OnDemand after the event. Attendees will also have access to BOOTCAMP presentations and any resource materials used. Attendees can ask questions throughout the sessions and will be encouraged to do so.


There will be six sessions during the BootCamp.

  • The BOOTCAMP 2024 programme will be published on 29 February 2024 along with our BOOTCAMP instructors.
