TCIA Marketing Opportunities
Our flagship program and the only safety credentialing program in the industry. Data shows
that companies with an employee enrolled in the CTSP program experience
fewer accidents and injuries, less lost time and reduced costs.
First introduced in 1975, EHAP has helped train thousands of
arborists – those involved in line clearance and those working on
residential properties near energized lines. The US Army Corp of
Engineers has recognized this credential and often requires EHAP
certification for companies to qualify for storm-related clean-ups.
Tree Care Academy offers a variety of courses that can be used by employers for
credentialing and training of employees according to industry standards.
Teach and test for critical skills and knowledge to verify the
competency of employees to work safely and professionally in and around
trees and equipment.
