Nebraska Maintenance Academy


The mission of the Nebraska Maintenance Academy is to educate and place professionals in the maintenance and rental industry by developing and enhancing the skills necessary for career advancement.

As a 501c3, we strive to give back to our community.  The majority of our NMA students are displaced workers or have been working in a position where the pay is below the median livable wage.  We believe that with the training and support we provide, the NMA will be able to make a positive impact on our student's lives.


Who we are and what we do:

To offer vocational training to those most in need, including but not limited to non-college-bound high school students, veterans, and any individual who desires a meaningful career change.

To provide educational training, resources, and certification for the Nebraska maintenance prospective and current workforce.

To immediately place those now trained individuals into careers. This is what differentiates NMA from other vocational training; namely, NMA is confident that a very high percentage of our trainees will get well-paying jobs with good benefits.

Train 45 people per year at NO cost to the student.

Each student is put through a 12-week intensive training.

8-week classroom hands-on training covering the following topics to achieve certification level:

•Drywall & Carpentry •Appliance Repair •Tile & Flooring •Pool Maintenance

•Electric •HVAC •Plumbing •OSHA

4-week onsite paid training will cover the following:

•Turns/Make Ready •Customer Service •Work Orders

•Workshop Safety •Grounds work •Employer Expectations
