AERIAL RESCUE - The most common reason for double fatalities in tree care is failed aerial rescue attempts – an emergency could develop any time one of your crews is aloft and your employees must know how to

react. TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program™ helps you protect your employees and meet the aerial rescue training requirements mandated by ANSI Z133.1 and OS. 

Aerial Rescue Training is needed as one of the qualifications to taking the ISA Tree Worker/Climber Certification test. 

ISA CEUS and CTSP credits are available for both courses.

All attendees will receive a certificate of completion.  TCIA manuals are an optional purchase.
