It’s likely your electrical business has already benefited in many ways from being a member of the Nexstar Network. Whether it’s due to the business coaching, planning or advising, there are a number of resources Nexstar Network offers to help your business grow. But now, arguably the best perk of your Nexstar Network membership is available to you at last: online training for electrical technicians.

That’s right, electrical training for electrician technicians is now available from NexTech Academy.

Not only will electrical training create better service technicians for your business, but it will also improve your employee recruitment and retention. You’ll be able to provide interested candidates with fast and affordable training that requires no previous knowledge. Plus, the NexTech Academy electrical training will help make your existing technicians better at their craft. Using the NexTech Academy courses, they will be able to do more and earn more over the course of their careers.

Online, skilled vocational training for electricians.

Because online technical training from NexTech Academy is new to electricians, you likely do not know much about it or the program. In fact, you may not even know what NexTech Academy is at all. Let’s get you up to speed.

NexTech Academy is a creation of Nexstar Network members. The idea behind NexTech Academy is to make skilled vocational training more affordable, faster, easier and better geared toward the best practices and needs of fellow Nexstar Network members. Rather than seeking a resource to train new and current technicians, Nexstar Network members chose to create their own best option. Because it was created by Nexstar Network members, the NexTech Academy courses are only available to employees of Nexstar Network members. So everything is geared specifically to our members’ needs, concerns, and businesses.

NexTech Academy offers a better way to train electricians.

NexTech Academy isn’t just another option for aspiring electricians to consider when seeking electrical training, it’s their best option. Why? Because NexTech Academy electrical training is unlike any other. The online platform creates opportunities that can’t be matched, or offered, by traditional, in-person trade schools.

Among the biggest differences of NexTech Academy is it’s flexible, video-rich, online curriculum. Students learn at their pace and on their own time. This self-guided and paced approach helps students fit courses into their schedule making it convenient. Plus, the use of videos allows students to review lessons as often as needed, or merely pause, rewind and review portions to achieve better comprehension.

Video courses are also supported by reading assignments, tests and hands-on activities that prove students can apply the teachings to real-life applications.

A new option for electrical training that’s already proven to work.

The biggest concern with any new class or training program is always, “will it work.” While NexTech Academy may sound too good to be true, it’s effectiveness and process have already been proven to work. If you’re an electrical business owner, you won’t have to wonder. You can know your technicians will be enrolling in a program that works.

NexTech Academy has been successfully training HVAC and plumbing technicians for years using the same concepts and practices. But now, there is one key difference—the platform. Along with the addition of electrical training courses, the NexTech Academy training program has been further improved with the launch of NexTech Academy 2.0.

An improved NexTech Academy for vocational training.

At NexTech Academy, we believe your best is just a benchmark to beat. Therefore we challenged ourselves to improve our online technical training programs. And we succeeded with the introduction of NexTech Academy 2.0.

It’s better all-around with more courses, a more robust platform, more video content, more options, better process tracking, interactive assignments, lower costs, and yes, the addition of electrical training.

NexTech Academy 2.0 is the leading edge for HVAC, plumbing and electrical online technical training. It’s superior to classroom learning in every way and more advanced than other online options.

We took our years of successful training, insights, and experiences and created a new program that exceeded our own expectations. Current HVAC and plumbing business owners that knew the original NexTech Academy love the changes. For you, an electrical business owner who will be using NexTech Academy for the first time, we promise, you and your students will be impressed by the depth of content, the richness of the learning experience, speed of the program, flexibility and value. It’s an unbeatable combination.

When it comes to skilled trade students, providing motivation is your first job.
