We’re Evolving NexTech Academy in 2020

We have been working hard on improving NexTech Academy, making changes to the program that will reduce the operating expenses. We updated pricing in September 2019, and we are launching new training resources to Nexstar Network members in Spring 2020.

We’ve reduced our pricing and are launching new training resources to Nexstar Network members in Spring 2020.

Same Training. Lower Pricing.

Enrollment Fee

We’ve removed our enrollment fee for students and businesses. That’s a savings of $500.

Trainer Fee

Save $99 a month over our previous fees. Because trainers play a critical role in employee retention and development we’ve dropped our trainer fee.

Student Fee

Training new employees is easy with NexTech. Now it costs less too. The new monthly price per student is $99.

NexTech 2.0 is in the Works

What is NexTech 2.0?

In Spring 2020, we’re launching our electrician training program, along with a handy “how-to” video curriculum for plumbers, HVAC professionals, and electricians.

Our “how-to” videos offer your employees a quick way to brush up on seldom-used skills before client appointments.

Like our entire curriculum, these videos may be watched anywhere, anytime on an as-needed basis.

While we’re ramping up to NexTech 2.0, your employees can continue their training without worry. All trainees will be automatically migrated to our new training program —without interruption—in Spring 2020.

What’s different besides the look?

  • More training options
  • More video content
  • New plumbing and HVAC content
  • New electrical curriculum
  • Easier progress tracking
  • Mobile-friendly design
  • Interactive reading assignments
  • Easy-to-understand dashboard
  • More training support resources
  • Faster enrollment

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.
