Roscoe Brown is seeking highly motivated HVAC/Plumbing Apprentices to join our NexTech Academy team.
If you are eager to become a skilled HVAC Technician or Plumbing Technician by improving your skills and learning new ones, this is your chance to launch your career. Our NexTech Academy Program offers you the benefits of a full-time employee while learning and developing in the skills of HVAC and Plumbing.
NexTech Academy curriculum integrates Nexstar Network’s best practices with step-by-step technical training and will help an employee with little trade experience become a confident and competent technician.
Knowledge & Pacing
NexTech Academy is not a “fast track to a truck” program. Our curriculum is intentional and prepares industry professionals. Most apprenticeship programs work on a 4-5-year model. NexTech Academy is designed to take a fraction of that time. We estimate that completion of the program will take 18 months.
By the end of Level One, the employee will be an educated helper, knowledgeable in tools, safety, and materials.
By the end of Level Two, the employee will be an advanced helper to a lead technician. Depending on ability and comprehension, they may run basic maintenance calls
By the end of Level Three, the employee will have experienced a variety of service calls expanding their knowledge base.
By the end of Level Four, the student will have the knowledge, confidence, and experience to troubleshoot and repair more advanced systems, and, with their Nexstar Training, they will be an outstanding ambassador for Roscoe Brown.
Successful NexTech Academy students are curious, open and excited to learn. NexTech provides a flexible learning approach by combining reading, interactive exercises, quizzes, videos, and skill-practice demonstrations in the curriculum. The pace of the program is determined by the amount of time that an employee can devote to it during their work week. Additionally, students will be able to learn at their own pace, meaning that some will move more quickly through the program than others. The training is progressive, and students will be able to run calls at some point prior to the completion of the program.
