The ServiceTitan HVAC National Championship (SHNC) is back for its second year and is set to shine a light on HVAC trade professionals and apprentices across the country.

The competition is now open for its digital qualifier round.
As part of the Elite Trades Championship Series, SHNC is a competition that showcases the best HVAC technicians and apprentices from across the United States, making Johnstone Supply a perfect partner to support this competition. The competition is designed to test the skills and knowledge of HVAC professionals and provides them with an opportunity to showcase their abilities and gain recognition in the industry.
Finalists who advance through two rounds of at-home competition will be invited to compete live for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes at the finals in Tampa, Florida, this October, which will be televised at a later date. In addition to an all-expense-paid trip to Tampa, finalists will receive a VIP prize package from SHNC sponsors including Johnstone Supplies.

It's an honor to present the ServiceTitan HVAC National Championship for a second year to recognize the hard-working technicians we all rely on," said Tom Howard, vice president of customer success at ServiceTitan.
