The status of an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist is becoming vital to those green industry professionals involved in tree care. More job positions and commercial and municipal contracts are requiring that a candidate either hold or attain ISA Certified Arborist status. In an effort to improve the industry and assist those interested in becoming an ISA Certified Arborist, the Community Tree Council of St. Charles is sponsoring this instructional review as a preparation tool for the exam. The review will be instructed by ISA Certified Arborists providing students the opportunity to learn from and network with industry professionals.
This review class will cover all 10 domains of the ISA Certified Arborist exam and 15 chapters of the Certification Study Guide in a two-day review. Due to the condensed format, it is strongly encouraged that participants review the Certification Study Guide before class. The study guide is an additional cost of $114.95 ($79.95 member price) and must be purchased through ISA. Call the ISA office at 888-472-8733 to order your copy (order #P1537) or visit their website.
Individuals that plan to take the ISA exam that is scheduled for February 2, MUST register with ISA by January 15 -- call ISA at 217-355-9411
