Additional Documentation Required for ISA Certification

 

During Spring 2015, the ISA Certification Department will release revised applications for exam candidates. The revisions stem from ISA’s continued work with the ISO/ANSI 17024 standard for personnel certification bodies on maintaining accreditation for the ISA Certified Arborist® program. In the past, the standard allowed self-attestation when determining applicants’ exam eligibility. In 2014, ISO and ANSI revisited this procedure and determined that accredited bodies will now need to require objective evidence of applicants’ eligibility prior to accepting their certification exam applications.
