ISA Certified Tree Climber Credential
We are excited to announce that ISA has rebranded the ISA Certified Tree Worker Climber Specialist program as the ISA Certified Tree Climber Credential.
The ISA wanted the name and logo for the credential to reflect the most vital competencies assessed in the program. The new name is a better alignment for how our credential holders identify themsevles and how employers promote roles associated with the job, and visually, the logo illustrates the commitment to safety made by credential holders and those whole employ them.
Perhaps not as readily noticeable, but of fundamental importance, is the fact that the examinations for this program (both written and skills) have undergone extensive revision, overseen by experts and practitioners in the field, to ensure that they test knowledge and skills that are up to date with current practices and techniques used in the field by professional tree climbers. The new examinations will be available to candidates for the program in 2024 and you can read more about the Job Task Analysis that was performed for this credential in the June 2023 issue of Arborist News.
We are grateful to all current credential holders for this program and hope you are as excited as we are about this change, and that you will continue this journey and commitment to professionalism and safety with us.
