The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA)

Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP)
The only safety credentialing program in the industry, TCIA's Certified Treecare Safety Professional program is designed to address several of the safety challenges that tree care companies face. More than a straightforward "safety trainer" credentialing program, CTSP teaches safety professionals strategies and tactics for changing the very culture of their organization. A CTSP acts as a safety "coach," working to develop and nurture a culture of safety. The program provides the CTSP with a well-rounded education in safety concepts, plus the tools to effectively communicate these concepts.
