Professional Climbers

TCI TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL TREE WORKERS

TCI has two programs for tree workers:

  • In the five-day "TCI Climbing Program for Entry-Level Tree Workers," students learn the fundamentals of tree climbing and tree climbing safety for tree work. No experience is needed. Read more.

  • In the one-day "Aerial Rescue for Arborists" program, students learn how to perform a simple or complex aerial rescue to get a victim out of a tree as quickly and safely as possible. Read more.


Both programs were designed by Peter "Treeman" Jenkins, founder of TCI and an ISA-Certified Arborist. Treeman did production tree work with his own company for 25 years before moving on to doing only tree inspections for hazards and risk. We enroll only three people in a class, so students get lots of personal attention and practice.
