Covid-19 Update

UPDATED NOVEMBER 23, 2020

At this time, the New England Chapter ISA is open and working 100% remotely you can reach chapter staff via e-mail or phone (978-844-0441).  In line with the CDC and ISA recommendations, we have canceled or postponed all Chapter events including workshops, ISA Exams, ISA TRAQ Courses and TRAQ Renewal Courses through June 30, 2020. We are monitoring the situation carefully and will provide updates as soon as we have them. We advise that you follow precautionary measures as outlined on the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website.  Stay home if you can, wash your hands often, limit contact with others, maintain a safe 6 feet of social distancing.

ISA/TCIA ESSENTIAL WORKER LETTER

As news around the COVID-19 virus evolves, and some U.S. cities and local municipalities shift to "essential work only" quarantine measures, we thought it was important to let you know that ISA has partnered with the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) to issue guidance to assist you in determining which types of tree care work should be considered "essential." Joint ISA/TCIA Essential Worker Letter.

NEW ENGLAND CHAPTER WORKSHOP AND EXAM NEWS

  • Upcoming Exams:
    • Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, out of an abundance of caution, we will be canceling our paper and pencil exams for the remainder of 2020. Computer-based exams can be taken at a Pearson Vue testing center near you. Pearson has an extensive safety protocol at their exam centers to ensure the safety of proctors and exam takers. If you have registered for a paper and pencil exam, you will be contacted by ISA to reschedule. We will continue to monitor this situation carefully and will schedule in-person, pencil and paper exams when it is safe to do so.
