New River Community College, in partnership with the National Apartment Association
Education Institute (NAAEI) and the Virginia Apartment Management Association (VAMA),
is offering an 11-week Certified Apartment Maintenance Technician course. The course
provides knowledge and hands-on experience through classroom instruction and lab
activities to gain entry and advance as a maintenance technician in the residential
property or commercial building industry. Students learn the basics of electrical, plumbing,
HVAC, mechanical, appliance, construction, painting, lock and key services, and repairs.
Upon successful completion, graduates will be eligible to take the Certified Apartment Maintenance Technician (CAMT) Certification Exam. After successfully passing the exam, students will receive their provisional certificate from NAAEI. After completing one year of experience in the industry, NAAEI will grant students their full certificate.
This and other FastForward programs provide affordable and short-term training. Virginia residents may qualify for special pricing.
