This course will provide instruction on the rope and harness climbing technique that is often used by International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborists.  Two hours will be spent in a class room setting reviewing the basics required for ISA certification in climbing and rigging. After the class all participants that have purchased climbing gear or have climbing gear that passes inspection (and sign a liability release) will get hands on time practicing climbing techniques in a tree.


The cost of the course (not including gear) will be $150.00 for members, and $200.00 for non-members.  You must pay online in advance through the SAAA website.  If you want to climb in the afternoon portion of the training you must have approved gear and sign a liability waiver.  If you need gear basic climbing sets will be available at discounted prices through Vermeer and will range from $475 to $800. Advanced notification and requests for gear lists please email
