Housecall Pro’s Trade Academy Awards
$50,000 in Scholarships to 20 Emerging HVAC Leaders.
Housecall Pro, the software platform trusted by over
24,000 home service companies to run their business,
recently awarded 20 HVAC students $50,000 in scholarships
through its Trade Academy program.
Academy, launched in 2021, is a free resource that hosts
industry-specific job boards. Home service businesses can
create employer profiles, post open job listings, and search
resumes of qualified candidates in their area. The platform,
created by Housecall Pro as part of its mission to champion
Pros to success, is fully committed to delivering value to
trade school students, job seekers, and home service
“One of our key goals for Trade Academy is to encourage more
young people to consider careers in the trades,” says Roland
Ligtenberg, Co-Founder at Housecall Pro. “Students are often
told that going to college for a four-year degree is the
only path to success and wealth—but we see in our data that
it’s not true. So we created the Trade Academy scholarship
fund to inspire the next generation of Pros to start a
fulfilling, lucrative career in the trades.”
