Get New HVAC Techs Ready for Your Next Busy Season

Our Comprehensive HVAC Curriculum Drives Results

Students pursuing a heating, ventilation and, air conditioning career via NexTech Tech Builder begin with the basic principles of heating and cooling systems and safety. Advanced coursework focuses on furnace and A/C system maintenance, troubleshooting, design, and installation. 

NexTech Academy is a recognized training provider for NATE® (North American Technician Excellence) certification. New apprentices can get the training they need to be able to take and pass the NATE® exam after graduating from NexTech Tech Builder.

Each HVAC course is broken down into modules that combine reading, interactive exercises, quizzes, videos, and skill-practice demonstrations. Varying curriculum paths allow HVAC businesses to align training to the season and their geographical location. The Nexstar Service System is interwoven throughout the courses, preparing students to convey trust and technical expertise while working with homeowners. See for yourself! 

Many Nexstar Network members work with apprentices on a part-time basis, with apprentices completing NexTech tech Builder within 4-6 months. However, if you’re motivated and can support students full-time, it’s possible to have new technicians in the field much sooner. Want to see how it’s done?
