Aerial List Specialist

The Aerial Lift Specialist course is designed to give an additional credential to tree care apprentices. This course will help you document and verify that the company has given OSHA-required safety training to all employees according to their job descriptions, as well as help them feel they are part of an important industry with a career path.

Use of Aerial Lift Specialist training as part of the TCIA Tree Care Academy™ also meets the TCIA Accreditation standard.

TCIA was recently awarded a federal grant in the amount of $154,233 from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
