Length: 12 weeks starting in September
Make your living taking care of the urban tree canopy. This apprenticeship program consists of an eight-week Level 1 session and a nine-week Level 2 session focusing on the planting, maintenance and removal of trees in urban settings. Job opportunities exist in the utility, municipal, and commercial tree-care sectors. Entry-level positions usually require strong climbing skills; after that, how high you climb is based on your skills, strengths and the specific needs of your employer.
This program emphasizes safety, teamwork and the development of sound, up-to-date job skills and workplace practices. Lectures and labs are balanced with a major practical fieldwork component, setting you up with the knowledge and skills you need to start your career as an arborist.
