This class provides an introduction to tree climbing and features the opportunity to have supervised climbing instruction in trees. It is ideal for tree companies looking to advance promising groundsmen, or gardeners and landscapers looking to move into tree work. Effective methods for climbing trees will be demonstrated by instructors and practiced by students. Safety rules will be reviewed and stressed. Students will learn how to tie critical knots regularly used by arborists. The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) Tree Climber Certification will be awarded to each student who attends all three days and passes the 90 question exam, which will be offered at the end of the last day from 2 – 4 p.m. Included in the fee, each student will receive a copy of The Tree Climbers Companion, by Jeff Jepson, a great resource for climbers.
Bring an arborist’s rope and saddle, a hard hat, gloves, safety glasses, and insect repellant to the class. Wear boots, long pants, and dress for the weather. This course carries 16.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists.
