NExT's curriculum provides courses for technical and nontechnical professional at all experience levels. The course matrix below organizes the curriculum by course focus and competency level. You can use this matrix to find the right course and build your training plans. Software and Domain courses are listed separately in their respective sections, please click on the interested tab to see all the courses under the corresponding discipline. Field trips are marked while technical courses that use software have been marked , and the courses with practical sessions (either hands-on operational or software or both) are highlighted with . There are some courses that use simulators and are highlighted with .
