Upcoming Workshops for Spring and Summer 2019

ASTI Aerial Rescue Workshop

Little Rock – Friday, May 3, 2019

8:00am to 4:00pm, MacArthur Park, 601 E. 9th St., Little Rock, AR 72202

When a tree worker is injured or incapacitated aloft, typically fellow crew members are the first to respond. An emergency could develop any time, and tree care professionals must know how to react.  TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program helps you protect your workers and meet the aerial rescue training requirements mandated by ANSI Z133.1 and OSHA.

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.

Learn from Travis Vickerson, CTSP and earn 7.0 ISA and TCIA CTSP CEUs. Registration is $35 and includes lunch. Register by clicking here, fill in the registration form, print the registration form and mail form with a check payable to AUFC.
