6.5 CEUs (CCB, ISA & TCIA)
TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program™ (ARTP) helps you protect your employees and meet the aerial rescue training requirements mandated by ANSI Z133.1 and OSHA. The most common reason for double fatalities in tree care is failed aerial rescue attempts. An emergency could develop any time one of your crews is aloft, and your employees must know how to react.
This certificate program is designed to be used in combination with on-the-job training and practice, so that crews have the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate an emergency situation and potentially rescue an injured tree worker.
Each enrollment includes a manual with five chapter tests, answer sheet, and Employee Competency Checklist; one test retake if needed, test correction and checklist review by TCIA. Completion of the program requires viewing of the Aerial Rescue DVD which will be documented and submitted to TCIA as part of this course.
Once a candidate has completed all training, TCIA will issue a certificate of completion, transcript storage in the TCIA database, helmet decal, and laminated wallet card.
Aerial Rescue Training is needed as one of the qualifications to taking the ISA Certified Tree Worker Climber Specialist test.
