The 22-year-old was arrested after an incident with his partner last month.
Savea, who did not enter a plea on Wednesday, had told a media conference last month that he and his partner had been arguing at the time of the alleged incident.
His lawyer Noel Sainsbury told the Wellington District Court on Wednesday that Savea would attend the course with the hope police would withdraw the charge against him, Fairfax Media reported.
Savea was released until his court appearance on June 12.
