Most students complete their training in about 18–24 months, compared to four to five years under most apprenticeship models.

The on-the-go video app offers your employees a quick way to brush up on seldom-used skills from their smartphones. You’ll have a virtual toolbox that prepares you to work with homeowners, troubleshoot, and make the necessary repairs.

What Members Say About Our Training

NexTech will allow us to have a top-notch training program for a fraction of the cost it would be to develop one on our own. With the shortage of technicians, NexTech will allow us to recruit candidates who want to make their career in HVAC and do not want the expense of college.

We have been growing at 10-15% each year for the last 4 years and the one thing that is holding even more growth back is not just finding good people but then training them …The program is so detailed and organized. It allows me to check up on trainees to see their progress and I have weekly meetings with them to hold them accountable. Having a Nexstar accountability coach is very helpful as well because it keeps me focused in between all the other duties my job requires.
