The Wisconsin Arborist Association proudly offers the Certified Arborist Study Group. This 10 week workshop covers each of the domains associated with the Certified Arborist Exam in the first 9 weeks followed by the Test in the 10th week. We have employed leading industry subject matter experts as instructors and tailored the classes for the working arborist. We believe strongly in this industry and if you are looking for advancement, these sessions will help you get there with a greater command of the information than could otherwise just be learned from the Study Guide. We also offer discounted pricing for our members, as a show of encouragement. Need CEU’s? Each class is offered a-la-carte for 2.5 CEU’s depending on space availability.
