TCIA’s Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP) program is the only safety credentialing program in the industry and is designed to address several of the safety challenges that tree care companies face.
The ideal CTSP shares attributes of a coach, including:
Good communication skills
Strong instructional skills
Model behavior that leads to a safer work environment
To become eligible for the Certified Treecare Safety Professional program, you must meet at least one of following requirements:
Three years’ of technical field experience in tree care with at least one year of assumed responsibility for safety (i.e., crew leader, trainer, safety committee member, emergency responder, certified CPR/first aid provider, etc.)
Six months’ technical field experience in arboriculture and one year in a professional safety position
Two- or four-year degree in Arboriculture, Forestry, Ornamental/Environmental Horticulture, Natural Resources, Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Safety or other related field with an internship that provided technical field experience
Municipal and Utility Arborists:
Because your employers are ineligible for TCIA membership, the CTSP program extends TCIA member pricing to you for enrollment and certification workshops as a professional courtesy.
