Arborist Certification in Ohio
Abstract: The Ohio Chapter of ISA has recently certified it's first 97 arborists. The first examination was the result of three years work. During that three-year period, representatives of many other chapters contacted the Ohio chapter for information and advice about building a certification program. The Ohio chapter researched many existing certification programs and adopted the strongest features of each. This article outlines the procedures followed in developing the Ohio Arborist Certification program. It may serve as a guideline for chapters planning certification.
