What’s NexTech Academy?

NexTech Academy is a comprehensive online technical training program for new HVAC, plumbing, and electrical technicians offered by Nexstar Network. The program allows you to begin training new employees anytime, anywhere. No previous technical training is required, just curiosity and a willingness to work hard.

Fully trained in half the time.

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

On-The-Go Video Training

We recently launched our NexTech On-The-Go video platform and app. Like our entire curriculum, these videos may be watched anywhere, anytime on an as-needed basis.

Help New Technicians Problem Solve With Confidence

NexTech Academy On-The-Go breaks down complex tasks into actionable steps. The streaming web platform is ideal for trainers who want to present or share video content.

How-to Videos In The Palm of Your Hand

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.
