     Attendees should read through the ISA Arborist Certification Study Guide (not included) to prepare for the review and the exam.  The Arborist Certification Study Guide is available at  www.isa-arbor.com and  www.amazon.com. An ISA Certified Arborist exam will be scheduled approximately one month after the review course for those wanting to take it.  Attendees will be responsible for completing their own application for the exam.

    The Georgia Forestry Commission is offering scholarships to cover the cost of registration for tree board members and tree care workers employed by a city, county, school or university who are not ISA Certified Arborists. Download scholarship form here. Scholarship application must be approved by the Georgia Forestry Commission before registering for the class.
