Aerial Rescue Training Workshop

October 22, 2022 @ 8:00 am 3:30 pm

When a tree worker is injured or incapacitated aloft, typically fellow crew members are the first to respond.  An emergency could develop at any time, and tree care professionals must know how to react.

TCIA’s Aerial Rescue Training Program helps 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.

 Registration starts at 8:00am.  Class to begin at 8:30am and be completed by 3:30pm.

Instructors: Eric Freesmeyer, Gary Kohler

Capacity: 30 Beginners/15 Advanced

  • ALL students will receive a workbook and a take home quiz if you have not already become certified through TCIA.
  • ALL students will be required to bring and wear proper PPE (hardhat and safety glasses). 
  • ALL students should also bring climbing gear to take part in a wide range of rescue scenarios (not mandatory to take class).
