ISA Certified Arborist TX-4214A
Certified Arborists are individuals in the tree care industry who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by leading experts on tree care. Certified Arborists must also continue their education to maintain their certification and adhere to a Code of Ethics. Therefore, they are more likely to be up to date on the latest techniques in arboriculture.
Becoming an ISA Certified Arborist is a voluntary process through which individuals can measure their knowledge and competence required to provide proper tree care. ISA Certification is not government-sponsored or government-endorsed; it is administered by the International Society of Arboriculture as a way for tree care professionals to demonstrate their commitment to the profession and the industry.
Society of Commercial Arboriculture
SCA is the largely considered the premiere organization for individuals working in commercial and residential arboriculture throughout the world. SCA provides educational opportunities to individuals improving their practice of commercial and residential arboriculture and encourages the exchange of ideas and information related to commercial arboriculture.

In addition, all CTSPs are required to complete 30 continuing education credits, which includes ongoing safety training, teaching safety classes, writing articles for publication in industry magazines, and more.
