ISA Certification is a voluntary program that tests and certifies your achievement of a professional level of knowledge and skill in the field of arboriculture. When you become an ISA Certified Arborist, you are recognized by your peers and the public as a tree care professional who has attained a generally-accepted level of knowledge in areas such as tree biology, diagnosis, maintenance practices, safety, and other subject and practice areas within the tree care profession as identified through periodic job task analyses.

Join us for our 2-day Prep Course for the ISA Certified Arborist exam. This workshop offers an opportunity for members of the tree care industry to prepare for the CA exam. Using the ISA CA Study Guide as a reference, our expert speakers will cover a variety of tree care topics found on the exam.
