The Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), a leading national retail and custom integration buying group, has partnered with Maverick Technical Institute (MTI) to create an all-new HTSA Masterclass training program for technicians. This new educational program, known as the HTSA Accelerated EST Masterclass, is a comprehensive training curriculum that is designed to advance the knowledge and professionalism of basic level installation technicians.
Maverick Technical Institute launched in 2015 and is the brainchild of Dennis Jaques and his colleagues at Maverick Integration, a custom integration business in Nashua, NH. Jaques found it difficult and frustrating to locate qualified electronic systems techs (ESTs) to hire for his bustling integration business. From this frustration came the idea to establish a custom integration-focused trade school that would educate future ESTs in the most important technologies of the day, share critical best practices knowledge, and teach the most professional installation techniques - all conducted in a real-world environment with hands-on labs and materials.
