Accidents involving brush chippers are a significant concern for tree care and landscape employers, the employees who operate the equipment, and manufacturers alike. With support from Altec Industries, Bandit Industries, Morbark Inc. and Vermeer Corporation, TCIA has created the new Chipper Operator Specialist credentialing program, designed to train tree care employees in hazards, as well as accepted practices for brush chipper operation and other associated tasks. For crew members who often do not receive formal training opportunities, the program will increase employee involvement with overall safety compliance and self-policing and provide crew members with an opportunity to earn a nationally recognized credential. Comes with the Chipper Operator Specialist manual and enrollment, a $35 value.

Register early - limited seating available!
