Here's some background on each of the educational programs:
Aerial Rescue Training Program: 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.This program helps you protect your employees and meet the aerial rescue training requirements mandated by ANSI Z133.1 and OSHA.

Ground Operations Specialist: Keep your ground workers motivated and trained by giving them an industry credential and help you verify, according to OSHA and ANSI Z133.1 guidelines, that you have given safety training to all your employees according to their job descriptions. Read more here.
Tree Climber Specialist: This program helps to verify that your employees understand basic safety concepts required to climb trees safely and are qualified to be a tree climber for your company. Read more here.
Aerial Lift Specialist:This program is designed to give an additional credential to your tree care apprentices, plus help you document and verify that you have given OSHA-required safety training to all your employees according to their job descriptions, as well as help employees feel they are part of an important industry with a career path.
