Tree Risk Assessment Re-Qualification Course



INSTRUCTOR: Geoff Kempter

CEUs: 5.0

COURSE INFORMATION: The TRAQ Renewal Course is a one-day refresher, with five hours of instruction, and three hours to take the exam. Current TRAQ holders can complete the course as early as three and one-half (3 1/2) years into their Qualification (18 months before your expiration date).

Once you have successfully passed the renewal requirements, you will be given 5 years from the date of your previous expiration allowing you to take full advantage of the 5 year period granted with the credential. If you do not take the renewal course before your renewal date, you will need to take the TRAQ course and assessment over again.

You will receive a confirmation packet from ISA in Atlanta, GA containing a letter with the date and time of the course and the name of the appropriate contact person. Confirmation packets will be shipped to the address provided on the personal information registration page. Please provide a physical shipping address.
