Nebraska Maintenance Training Academy


The AAN Nebraska Maintenance Training Academy (NMA) was created to assist the multi-family rental industry by providing a vocational training program to fill their key maintenance roles within the state of Nebraska. Students of the academy receive hands-on training in the basics of carpentry, electrical, appliance repair, plumbing, HVAC, OSHA certification, customer service, and much more. This program has been successfully implemented in the state of Maryland through the Maryland Multi-Housing Association’s Service Training Academy (MMHASTA) and proven to positively impact both the students and the properties in which they were placed.


NMA’s goals are:
