Mass. Arborist Exam
Candidates for the MCA Exam must own their own copy of the MCA Study Guide version 3.0. (Owners of version 2.0 are automatically considered 3.0 owners).
The MCA exam is intended for arborists with either a degree in arboriculture (or related field of study) or two or more years work experience working in the tree care industry. This is not an entrance exam into the profession.
The MAA Office requires 2 weeks notice of cancellation. For the October 2022 exam, the cancellation deadline is September 22, 2022. Failure to provide two weeks notice will result in forfeit of the exam fee. Exam registrations will not be advanced to a future date; re-registration will be required. Thank you for your understanding.
