Arborist Safety Training Institute

The Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI), launched by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF), works to bring quality, local and affordable safety training to working arborists.

Arborists cope every day with hazards that are unimaginable in most professions. Although most receive some sort of on-the-job, informal safety training, far too many risk their lives because they are not adequately trained.

ASTI provides grants for job and safety training to minimize consequent deaths and injuries, and promote overall workforce safety.

Check the TCIA Training Calendar for ASTI workshops – these workshops cover a variety of topics and are hosted year-round across the country.
