All MCAs are required to earn 10 continuing education credits each year.  Two credits must be education and two credits must be safety. 

It is the responsibility of the arborist to maintain records of continuing education credits earned and submit credits annually.  

Be sure to visit the INDUSTRY CALENDAR for upcoming events that may grant credit.
