Our comprehensive plumbing curriculum drives results
Students pursuing a plumbing career via NexTech Tech Builder begin with the basic principles of plumbing and safety, followed by training in drain systems, vents, water lines and fixture installation. Advanced coursework focuses on troubleshooting, hydronic and solar water heating systems, private wells and septic systems, and plumbing system design and installation.
Each topic is broken down into modules that combine reading, interactive exercises, quizzes, videos, and skills practice demonstrations. The Nexstar Service System is interwoven throughout the curriculum, 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 12-18 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?
The NexTech Academy/NexTech Tech Builder training for new apprentices isn’t the only way to educate and support new plumbers. NexTech Select provides online and on–demand training for a variety of plumbing topics. NexTech On-The-Go is an app that contains 200+ troubleshooting and repair videos, ideal for any technician who needs a trusted resource in their pocket.
