Tree Risk Assessment Qualification RENEWAL – Kingston
The ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) program provides an opportunity for professionals in the arboriculture industry to expand their knowledge through education and training in the fundamentals of tree risk assessment. This qualification promotes the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing
tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity.
The Tree Risk Assessment Qualification Renewal Course is a one-day refresher, with five hours of instruction, and three hours to take the exam. Current TRAQ holders can complete the abbreviated course as early as four years into their qualification.
TREE RISK ASSESSMENT QUALIFICATION INFORMATION
The Tree Risk Assessment Qualification is valid for five years from the date the TRAQ exam is passed. The qualification holder is required to retake the course and pass the exam every five years in order to maintain the qualification. Requalification means that your NEW qualification date will only be applied after your initial qualification has expired after the FULL 5 years. YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANY TIME ON YOUR INITIAL QUALIFICATION. Your reTRAQ window will open eighteen (18) months BEFORE your expiry date, and no extensions will be given BEYOND your expiry date. Please consider your expiry date, and the renewal classes carefully, as there may not be a class that lines up directly with your expiry date.
To be able to register for the TRAQ Renewal Course you must hold a TRAQ credential. You may complete the TRAQ Renewal Course as early as 18 months prior to your qualification expiration date.
