Become a TCIA Approved Instructor

Arboriculture is a dangerous profession, so it's only natural that safety training is one of our biggest priorities here at TCIA.

TCIA has Tree Care Academy and Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP) training courses to help keep your employees safe and get them trained. Many of the training programs also make great workshops.

By becoming a TCIA Approved Instructor, you can teach Tree Care Academy and EHAP workshops for:

  • TCIA
  • Local arborist groups
  • To fulfill grants
  • Municipalities and other agencies
  • For other commercial companies
All you have to do is complete four steps:
  1. Become a CTSP
  2. Hold a valid certificate in the course you want to teach (such as Chipper Operator Specialist, EHAP, etc.)
  3. Provide references for a minimum of five successful training events
  4. Agree to recognize and not abuse EHAP and Tree Care Academy trademarks and copyrights
