TCIA Certified Treecare Safety Professionals

Many small businesses don't have the resources to hire staff specifically for safety training. By giving one or more existing employees the tools to become their company's safety trainer(s), the CTSP program not only allows business owners to establish a safety program for a modest investment, it also provides a new career path for these key employees, increasing their job satisfaction and company loyalty. Eligibility requirements include:

Three years technical field experience in tree care with at least one year of assumed responsibility for safety (i.e., crew leader, trainer, safety committee member, emergency responder, certified CPR/first aid provider, etc.), or...

Six month’s technical field experience and one year in a professional safety position, or...

Two or four year degree in Arboriculture, Forestry, Ornamental/Environmental Horticulture, Natural Resources, Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Safety or other related field with an internship that provided technical field experience.
