About our speakers:
Over seven sessions, experienced instructors and certified arborists Rob Swanson and Kay Evanovich will help attendees prepare for the exam with talks covering Tree Biology, Tree Identification, Soil Science, Water Management, Tree Nutrition and Fertilization, Tree Selection, Installation and Establishment, Pruning, Tree Support and Lightning Protection, Diagnosis and Plant Disorders, Plant Health Care, Tree Assessment and Risk Management, Trees and Construction, Urban Forestry, Tree Worker Safety, and Climbing & Working in Trees. Attendees will also learn about eligibility for the exam and taking the exam.
***All registrants will receive a video recording of the classes at the end of each week***
Attendees should combine this class with the study of the ISA Certified Arborists' Study Guide (not included in course registration). The GAA has a limited number of copies available in exchange for a donation to the GAA. You can make your donation here.
Attendees are responsible for completing their own application for the exam through the ISA. This is a 2 step process which begins with an application, and once approved by the ISA you can register for the exam date and location of your choice. Exam fees are handled by ISA and are not included in registration for this course. You can find a copy of the ISA Certified Arborist Application Guide HERE. If you have any questions about the process, the GAA is happy to help!
Please be sure to read all instructions within your event confirmation email to ensure you complete the final step of registering your email via Zoom. This ensures you will receive the log in instructions/link/password ahead of the event.
Scholarships are available to tree board members and tree care workers employed by a city, county, school or university who are not already ISA Certified Arborists. Scholarships are sponsored by the Georgia Forestry Commission. Applicants must be employed within the State of Georgia. Scholarship covers the $100 cost of the course, but does not include free membership. You may apply for scholarship here. If applying for scholarship please be sure to register to hold your spot - instead of paying just choose "invoice me". Scholarship application deadline is Oct 10, 2023.

***For those who want to register for the course as a refresher, and are already certified arborists you can receive 15 CEUS. CEU sign in sheets are virtual and will be provided to the class in the chat window at the end of each session. If you do not submit your sign in sheet, you will not receive CEUs.***
