TCIA is working hard to create the most impactful learning environment possible. We chose the Brightspace platform because it is the most robust and engaging one we could find that matched our standards and the high-level of professionalism that you expect from us.

The transition to full online learning will roll out in the following way:

Online testing is currently available for ALL our employer credentialing programs through the online testing portal. This includes exams from EHAP and our 13 Tree Care Academy programs in English and Spanish.

Next, our product team is working to develop fully integrated online courses based on our all-encompassing suite of Tree Care Academy materials.

We hope to offer five courses by the end of 2021. With more to come!
