Praise from Russell Bartolotta "How I survived and passed the Certified Arborists' Course the first time:

All I did was:

  1. I read the Certified Arborist Course Study Book from front to back a few times.
  2. I did the worksheets at the end of each chapter – Then I re-studied what questions I missed on each chapter and then used the worksheets as review.
  3. Went to all the classes AND paid attention. (I also enjoyed the refreshments that Ted and his group provided.)
  4. I got a room overnight near the test location because it was too far from my home.

Basically, I just did whatever Ted recommended to do to pass the Certified Arborist Course exam. This course is comprehensive and organized with very knowledgeable and experienced speakers. I highly recommend it!

Thank you Ted!"
